I don't understand the difference between running under it's own power or being hauled dead in train though in terms of possible defects due to high engine hours.

I mean, yeah it's inconvenient if a traction related failure causes it to block a main line, but if there's a problem with the bogies/wheels which could lead do a derailment or similar incident, this could still happen.

Never understood this for new loco deliveries either. They always get 'collected' and then dragged by another loco.
