James, one or two locos may just depend on if an auto rack train is loaded or empty. Compared to other more traditional freight trains, a unit auto rack train is not that heavy.

As an x railroad worker for burlington northern (1972-1974) i belive that when they have only one locamotive , the cars are empty , and when they are loaded they need two or more locomotives depending on the number of cars and availability of locomotives I may not be right but at least its close.Keep up the great work james.
