The livery of the unit on test isn't final yet. A second unit was outshopped not too long ago and this had the blue band continue on the power cars.

That's real. Tests are going on and the train has reached speeds up to 165mph. :)
French trains were doing that speed in 1980. Only 40 years to catch up USA :D

Will these be doubled and split as per TGVs allowing for more peak capacity into and out of NYC, Philly, Washington and Boston?

Looking forward to taking one of these. I will probably fly CHA-ATL-BOS then overnight in MA then train Boston to DC then fly out of Ronald Reagan via ATL back to CHA
