Just stand way back behind the yellow line. Those Acelas max out at 150 mph through Kingston Station. It’s a good spot to photograph trains.

Check out MBTA Commuter Rail operations too if you can. On the NEC, they operate as far south as Wickford Jct, located about nine miles from the Kingston Amtrak Station. MBTA still uses older F40PH and GP40MC units on many of its lines but on the lines with the highest ridership in the system, they tend to use the HSP-46 units.

Kingston station is an end point of a bike trail to Narragansett that follows the former Narragansett Pier Railroad right of way.
