A typical move like this, (historic, out of service, friction bearing trucks), is normally done with two engines bracketing the subject car(s). This allows for additional braking capacity in the consist. 

In the case of C-60 it was the "luck of the draw" to have three engines involved in the move. The three had been lashed together for work train service and were scheduled to go to work again after the C-60 move to Fresh Pond.
