Why does SRY always seem to run two locos when the trains are never more than six cars in length?

Welcome to the board. Occasionally there is only 1 locomotive but mostly there is 2. I think it has something to do with having better visibility in both directions as the 2 locos are coupled together with the cab end facing out at each end.

Something to check as well, are both engines actually running when they are both out and about? There could possibly be one only running at a time.
SRY has at least one set of a calf-cow, in which there is what appears to be two locomotives but, in fact only one that has a diesel engine inside operable. Power from that one engine is transferred to the second unit's traction motors.
