The PTC test trains are 4-car flat sets with MBBs that were made good enough to run as trailing cars but not carry passengers. That's probably what you saw.

Providence train 825 (control car 1704) had 9 doubles on it Friday. Set is usually used for 808 in the morning. Preparation for the marathon ridership?
