The Side Lettering on AMTK 662

The lens I had with me at Kingston Station yesterday was less than ideal to capture AMTK 662's train and also the side lettering. With the train stopped I was able to capture this view of the added side lettering, both the 50th anniversary logo for Amtrak and the ad for Train Sim World 2. High level platforms do not provide much room to maneuver with a short telephoto (43-86 mm on a crop sensor) when trying to capture an interesting side view of a locomotive.

Wonder if Amtrak's punctuality is better in Train Sim World 2 than it is in the real world?

I suspect new purchasers inspired by this locomotive would have a hard time matching Amtrak's performance, which is usually pretty decent along the NE Corridor. I know I found a long learning curve with an earlier version of locomotive simulation, especially trying to run an ACS-64 with all the alerts the engineer must reply to in order to avoid having the brakes set; and having the brakes set does not help maintain the schedule.
