Noisy, "sky train" moving slowly with suden accellaration

Hello: I looka t the sky a lot, am an amateur astronomer. This report is of a craft I have not heard described very much. My son was losing a baseball game very badly, so I walked away from the field and was looking at the top of the trees. The craft came from my left, roughly south and headed north. The best way I can describe it was a "sky train". This craft was perhaps 200 yards long but only, perhaps 30 feet wide. It was at an elevation of perhaps 200 feet and was rather noisy. The noise was a rhythmic humming. There were multiple sections (very like a train) and they were all illuninated, greenish and yellow lights. It eas moving rather slowly, perhaps 50 mph, but once it cleared the tree lines it accellarated dramatically. I have never seen anything else like this.
