I caught wind of those photos a few days ago. I've been wondering what the reasoning is behind doing so. Doesn't make much sense.

I think the situation is that Tri-Rail is so short of equipment that anything that will run is used day for day. Apparently the
DMU equipment has the same MU control lines and connections that the diesels and coaches have.
