Actually the Diesel Locomotive is the silver Amtrak unit behind the tenders.  It is required to be along to provide Hotel Electric Power to the cars. It also is a nice safety to provide dynamic braking on hills and back up power.  The Steam Locomotive is equipped with Multiple Unit controller to remotely operate it.
