Hi Hiawatha, Thank you for the follow up information. Now that I've read though it, it makes sense the train would have power cars, enabling the Union Pacific to employ any motive power available to pull the train. The power cars take the place of HEP equipment on passenger locomotives. 

The Norfolk Southern F9's assigned to the NS OCS train have HEP (Head End Power) which is actually an auxiliary diesel engine that drives a auxiliary generator to power all the electrical needs of the passenger cars. The exhaust for the HEP is on the roof at the rear of the locomotive, they look like giant automobile exhaust mufflers.
 


Both F9A's have HEP equipment, the F7B's do not have HEP equipment.

Cheers,
Rich S.
