Honestly, not to steer off topic, but seriously, how old are you? Like, 12? 13?
I watched a Youtube video of these new locomotives. Amtrak just made a solid investment.
My question is, though, is if the software on these new locomotives is encrypted?
Back on topic: here's a daytime video of the test train with the cab car heading up to Boston:

I just saw this consist on the NEC in Pawtucket, RI heading Southbound (towards Providence Station) with the locomotive trailing in push mode about an hour ago (approx. 11:15 AM 9/13/13).
I was inadvertantly pacing the train as I travelled Southbound on Rt. 95.
I had just left an eye doctor's appointment and my pupils were dilated so I literally did a doubletake and questioned my eyesight when I realized what it was. At first I thought it was an out-of-service AEM-7 being towed at the trailing end of an Amtrak NEC Regional; train, which would be odd in and of itself, I felt quite fortunate to be in the right place at the right time when I realized I was seeing a test train..
