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

As long as the subway route was level, there are not too many curves, and the train was run gently, I think the power car is capable (although I don't have any empirical evidence to back this up.) But I would be concerned if there were any grades or sinuous curves adding to the load.

Then there's the unrelated question of having enough room to build a station platform long enough for 8 cars anyway!
