On level ground, yes.  However, if there is a curve involved, which might be looking at the picture, or a grade, that's an entirely different matter.  I have an old message from UP that calls on the trainmaster to tell an industry to stop using horses to switch cars because of union complaints, so animals pulling cars weren't entirely unheard of.
