Acela and ACS-64 Side by Side at Kingston Station

Under normal circumstances I would have had to be extraordinarily lucky to capture this sharp image of Acela 2038 on Train 2160 and ACS-64 622 on Train 86, but it was quite easy with both trains at a full stop. Train 2160 was stopped to pick up a relief crew and Train 86 was making its regular station stop about 80 minutes late. Train 2160 departed first and train 86 departed slowly a bit later, as it had to cross over at Kingston Interlocking just east of here and follow 2160.
The photo would have been easier with a wider lens or if the platform between tracks 1 and 3 were wider and less cluttered with catenary poles and lamps, but this is not a situation one can count on when heading out.
I have seen Acelas stop at Kingston Station for a relief crew in the past, but I don't recall it ever happening with a 2nd train also in the station simultaneously.
