They could have. Maybe those 2 fellas on the roadbed were nearby so it was quicker to "jump" the train rather than waiting for the follower to add up. At least at NYCT, they don't like adding and cutting trains with passengers aboard in case of a hard add or hard stop upon uncoupling. Last thing you want is a passenger injury and lawsuit.

When you have 4 cars and you have such a long gap, you should enter it with enough momentum so that you know you can get to the other side to pick up the third rail once again.
