Based on steam locomotive 385 in the background to the right, it appears to be the Whippany Railway Museum in New Jersey. The Presidential train is departing the station heading west.
Mr. Ken V; now for the follow up question; where did the Stainless Steel cars come from as they do not appear to be part of the Museum's collection:

From what can be seen using Google maps here and here and from other photographs of the Museum, there is more equipment housed there than shown on the Museum's website. Whether these are also a part of their collection or stored there for other owners, I do not know. I've never visited the Museum in question.

The only train trips I regret are the ones I didn't take.
