Couldn't have said it any better myself.
I just reread and realize that you were on board! Now I understand better, and it explains the blur in the second shot. On the second one it does look like you could go there and shoot from the ground, facing away from the train as the train goes by.
I disagree here. I have seem lots of great window reflection opportunities, but I could not make any of them work because I always ended up getting my own reflection. Taking the reflection OF the train from ON the train solves that issue. The other thing that will not work by shooting from the ground is height, you are much higher up and can see more of the reflection from on the train.
