There is additional equipment in the coach as well, not just in the cab which is very limited in space. It was also pulled out of mothballs to be used for PTC testing so it may not have been made passenger-worthy.

And while the 1514 was involved, it was not on the in-service train. It was on the train that ran the signal. Images show the 1533 was the control car on the in-service train.

1514 was open to passengers last night despite having stickers still on it saying "Not for revenue passenger service".

Around 3-4 I saw an Amtrak car in the middle of a consist on the Beverly Drawbridge headed towards Boston, what's up with that? Tried to get a pic but I was busy with some Bill &Bobs Roast Beef and missed the shot

Most likely the Corridor Clipper track geometry car. The T borrows it every year to inspect the tracks.

Yup. It was in the middle of a consist on track 10 this morning (~7:30am) at North Station.

I saw an outbound train this evening at Wyoming Hill that had a locomotive, 3 (IIRC) coaches, another locomotive, and another 4 or 5 coaches. The second locomotive seemed to be doing the work. I'm not sure what the train number was, as this was around 7:30PM.

That was what sounded like an epic failure of 217, being rescued by 295. I'll post something over in the delay thread from what I saw on T Alerts.

Spotted a Pan Am office observation train (it seems like a mix of dark blue and stainless cars) headed towards Boston engine on the south and observation car on the North.

I suspect it was waiting to enter the stretch of track that is single tracked on the Lowell line at midday, not moving just parked at Tufts University

Saw a 3 car sets of flats with a Geep on either end heading towards North Station. We passed a little before Lynn on train 119 tonight.

I'm assuming it was an extra?

Yesterday it was on a six-car set in the "quiet car" position, with a Rotem adjacent. So four flats and two bilevels on that set.
