First revenue run of new Amtrak electric locomotive

Hi, I went out this afternoon with friends Bill Kalkman, Jim Kleeman, and Rodney Peterson for a first look and photograph of Amtrak's new ACS64 locomotive on its first revenue run. The locomotive was the power for Train #171, the New York City to Lynchburg, VA train.  All of the photos were taken at Perryman, MD.

First up, though was a southbound Acela at 2:55 PM (above and below).

Train #171 followed 10 minutes behind (above and below).

Thanks for looking.
