Number of Locomotives
The Number of Locomotives is calculated by adding together the total number of operable railroad locomotives a company owns
This metric is used in the Railroad Industry to judge a company's size and capacity. A company with a high number of locomotives indicates that it is relatively large and has the capacity to transport large amounts of cargo or passengers. However, this number does not factor in the utilization rate of the locomotives. This means that a company may have a certain number of locomotives which are at capacity, and so cannot expand, while another company may have too many locomotives with too few demand.
