Saturday Afternoon Acela Passing Kingston Station

Amtrak Acela 2036, operating as train 2252, races through Kingston Station on its way to what should be an on-time arrival in Providence. There was enough light for me to use a shutter speed of 1/2500 second. Holding down the shutter release allowed enough images at that shutter speed speed that this one stops the train just short of the station sign. I'd like claim I have the reflexes to pull this off with 1 exposure, but I doubt anyone can do that consistently with an Acela operating at their 150 mph track speed here.
