A 10 second exposure caused this passing train to lose its wheels and levitate above the track.

Thanks for looking!

Mike, I originally thought it was from a window frame on the train, but you're right, it's a shadow from a telephone pole. It was too dark to be visible when I was shooting, but here's another capture where it appears in the long exposure.

Thanks for your comment,
Jeff

It's fascinating how you completely lost the wheels, and there's no blur at all.
