Reply to "Optimal location of power cars on combined Subway consist?"

What about running one power and one end car, and buying two more intermediate cars (they are still out there on Ebay from time to time) to make up an 8 car set?

Joe,

My concern with that would be any strain being put on the power car to pull 7 other heavy cars.  Subway cars are heavy due to the electronics, and each of them way more than any freight car (Husky stacks and AutoCarriers are basically hollow shells that weigh a lot less).
