The tables are correct for the measurement made.
But they cover only one of the many possible cases.
So many questions will be raised.
As you can see from these charts there is often no one answer as to which locomotive is best.
I have to highly recommend these graphs instead. They have many counter intuitive results but have tested accurately.
I know many who have built spreadsheets (myself included). While the HMR graphs don't include number of stops, chained hauling is almost always hands down to elephants (era 2, era 3, era 4 ), so its not as interesting a case as it would seem.
