Thank you for the very prompt response. I'll restart from the terminal lambda state with appropriate equilibration.

Subject: Re: namd-l: Equilibration for a reverse FEP run
if this is a continuation of the forward run, there is no real need to
re-equilibrate. Suffice to restart in the other direction, assuming
that your have an appropriate number of equilibration steps per
stratum, or ë-state, to eliminate any possible Hamiltonian lag.
Thanks you for the kind comment on our tutorials.
