Some thoughts. Location 1 has more potential because in location 2 you will always have the problem of squeezing the train into the narrow strips as the wall is broken up by non-glass sections.

Light, light, light! You need light on the side of the train, otherwise the reflection does not seem to be strong enough for the train to "emerge" from the window.

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. On the first, maybe too tight a squeeze, or just plain unsafe. Anyway, keep trying if you can!
