Was on Train 025 Mon. night on an exceedingly rare all-flats set on the Old Colony. Containing exceedingly rare-for-Old Colony 600-series Bombardier coaches lacking automatic doors, which confused the hell out of passengers who had to go sprinting to the adjacent Pullmans to get off. Guessing that was a one-off equipment bump from somewhere else.

Also, the 150x cab was pumping out the new ASA announcements...first time I've ever seen the new announcements activated on any non-Rotem or non-1700 rebuild cab. No LED displays on any of the cars, but it was pumping out full glitch-free audio (something the the Brokem cabs rarely do!).

On 823 now, the 4:55 outbound to Providence. It's usually an 8-car solid bilevel set, but today has seven bilevels plus one flat stuck in as the third to last car. The set looks really funky!
