New Amtrak locomotive spotted in Nebraska

RALSTON, Neb. -- It's a new day for Amtrak. The company is set to begin using its new line of locomotives, and one just made its way through Nebraska.

The new trains were revealed in June, and the first one is en route from the plant in California to Delaware.

The Charger was spotted earlier this week in Ralston.

The black one-of-a-kind "50th anniversary" scheme is to commemorate the first train pained for Amtrak in 1971.

The new locomotives are part of the company's ongoing improvements to long-distance service.
