Chase's shot is much better than the other, IMO.
So, what you're saying is that if the train were motion-blurred, it would be acceptable? A blurred train un-breaks the rules? And I wasn't comparing Chase's shot in terms of better or worse.

I just see the pic as a nice night-time station shot which just happens to have a train passing by that isn't blurred, but if it were blurred NO ONE would take an issue with it.
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."

This pretty much sums it up:
