Prior to MDOT ownership, adding/removing cars at AA meant you had to pay NS to send a local out there to do the switching. That doesn't help the economics of such a service.
Not sure what the NS/Amtrak/MDOT contract says about that now. But unless you really want to delay the scheduled trains, you need to have an engine and crew at AA that has everything prepared to add or remove cars from the scheduled trains.
