It's not just shorter, only a single locomotive is needed to pull a 6 car train than the usual doubled headed trains.

Sorry wrong.

Double header locomotives are a backup to one under going testing or been broke in after rebuilt or changes as well new ones. F59PH used on 6-8 car trains while MPI MP40PH-3C can handle 12 cars as well the new ones.

Otherwise, a single locomotive on a train

Saw something from Spadina Over pass today that saw 2 UPX trains pass each other in the main corridor as their normality route was close due to cables being install in the new duck bank, Between passing each other on the wrong tracks is no big deal, but both trains were 3 cars long. 1xxx at each end and a 3xxx in the middle. Been a long time I seen1 3 car train on line, but 2. No idea if the other sets are 3 cars long as well.

So, there's a new duck bank, at last!
