I have to assume the cars were empty. Otherwise - wow.

Theirs no mention that I could see if the cars were loaded, regardless, that's a lot of pulling power from a 1500 HP switcher.

As long as you don't have to climb a slope, you don't need a lot of power to pull heavy loads on rails. Power is neccessary to speed up the train. So a locomotive with few power needs a lot of time to bring the train to its speed. But keeping a train rolling needs very few power.
