Photo by O. Winston Link. Read more info here.
From the page: "Link used a total of 43 flash bulbs, all fired simultaneously to achieve this magnificent result. Winston once stated, "Since I could only see the headlight of the locomotive in total darkness, I did not know until the flash was fired that I had captured this prize." The couple in the foreground sits in Winston's 1952 Buick convertible."
