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.
"The destination of this train is [BEEP BEEP]" -announcement on an Ashmont train.

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