Revenue service testing began last week of the first Viewliner dining car built by CAF USA.
The testing is part of an Amtrak acceptance program for new cars. If No. 68001 passes the testing program, Amtrak will begin taking delivery of additional Viewliners in January.
Amtrak has one other Viewliner diner, No. 8400, the Indianapolis, which was a prototype diner built in 1988.
The Viewliner diners will be assigned to Eastern single-level long-distance train. Amtrak has ordered 25 Viewliner diners from CAF.
