In the past few days a new 5-10mph speed restriction has gone in between yawkey and cove for some reason.There have been no other changes with Amtrak TD's. The Terminal TD is in charge of South Station's TOWER 1 and COVE interlockings. The Worcester Main Line TD is in control between COVE (exclusive) and CP 45 (exclusive).There is a 10 mph speed restriction within CP 3 interlocking limits. I noticed fresh wooden ties under the mass pike near CP 3, assuming the two are connected.

I used to hear the NA dispatcher fine as well as some of the trains and on a good day I could hear the Grafton Detector.I recall their used (?) to be an antenna on a hill in Paxton, Anebusket(?) hill or a similar name. And an antenna in the main yards.
Thanks in advance

I noticed at least two or three days during that week where they took to Twitter to brag about their success.
