Not sure if this is still in effect or not. CSX's Amtrak contract in the past specified additional time allowance for check points if trains contained more than 8 cars with a single unit. As I recall, the contract called for an additional 10 minutes to the allowed deviation for being On Time. During this contract, Auto Train always ran with at least two units. Silver Service trains of more than 8 cars normally had two units.
