That's on a train, which usually go pretty fast, so I'd say no longer than two or three seconds, but that's a completely random estimate. I'm really not sure.

That looks like it could be two pictures. The white balance of the outside doesn't match the interior, and a longer exposure would yield more motion blur among the passengers.

What type of camera do you have?

Look at the blurring of the girl's face on the right. You wouldn't need more than a second or two to get that much blur outside on a fast-moving train, and the blur on the girl's face looks like a second or two as well. As far as white balance goes, the interior and exterior shouldn't match, because they're completely different temperatures. If you've got your camera balanced for daylight, then you'd expect tungsten lights to appear orange. That's the way it works. Sooooo....I'd say it's all one shot.

This could be an HDR image, (High Dynamic Range, usually multiple exposures merged, blended and tone mapped) though they are difficult with longer exposures, tone mapping is not impossible, but blending the merged images without too much ghosting would be a problem. The color casting another poster mentioned could just be from a daylight balanced exposure, and then warmer color temperatures indoor that make the blue color on the left and orangish interior of the train.

It is an interesting image, and could be a single long exposure with some sort of high pass or other tonal contrast added to exaggerate the shadow detail too... For future reference why not just ask the person who captured and edited it?

that really depends on the speed of the train. a fast shutter speed might give you this effect in a really fast moving train. so go for a trial and error. :)
