Been hearing a lot of activity on 160.41. Dispatcher talking to engines and track cars. dispatcher signs off saying " Worcester line dispatcher clear". Does anybody else know about this???

That’s the MBTA Worcester Line dispatcher who controls between Cove and CP45.

Thanks. Does anybody have a list of the locations of the hot box detectors?
  by Backshophoss
 
CSX had a Hot box/dragging equipment detector at MP 37.4 (N. Grafton),a dragging equipment detector at MP 24.9(Ashland),
and a High car detector at MP 20 (W. Natick).
Unknown if they are maintained by CSX or MBTA Signal Dept,or have modified to the MBTA Road Channel.
