How long had 601 been in service? It might not beat P40 819 as the shortest-lived Amtrak loco, but it's got to be pretty high up on the list?

#601 began testing along the NEC in February of 2014, with its first revenue run on March 1st. The derailment of train #188 occurred on May 12th, 2015, which means #601 was in service for just over 14 months.

The two P42s wrecked at Wendover in 2001 likely had shorter careers too then?
