So this seems to be where we are:
Cp is moving substantial tonnage, but with dpu technology a 2d train pair is not needed so far
Are auto racks still moving?

Does NVSR run DPUs on their portion of the trip from SJ or do they just add more power on the front end?

A few factors—

NBSR runs 4 trains a day 5 days a week and just 2 the remaining days.

CP is staffing up to add more trains, so volumes are throttled until this is completed

Seasonal traffic peaks Q4 and Q1 on the Moosehead with LPG and higher forest products volumes

Port SJ expansion isn’t complete until Q1’23 but the new capacity is already “sold out”. The 800TEU second expansion will be complete in 2024

132 was into Greenville Jct. at 17:42 with 8064/9715/9675/2257 and 33 mixed freight, 58 wells/128 containers.

Yes to the racks, but generally in cuts of 10-15 at most. 11 went east today.

Irving is not using DPUs, but tacking a variety of power up front. They're moving plenty of 100+ car trains these days, in addition to the chip trains.
