In UP's business trainset, if you look closely, you'll notice that 1 or 2 of the car that look like "baggage" cars are actually equipped with their own HEP generators for powering the train. This allows any UP locomotive, whether units from their standard fleet, or from their "historical collection" (ie: their E units, or DDA40X), to pull a UP excursion, or business outing. This also helps with not having to install extra equipment on the steam locomotives as well.
