They helped to spread out the weight of the locomotive on lighter rails. CNR GMD-1's operated in my region and i've not heard any real complaints about them having an idler axle between the two powered ones.

A1A-A1As were pretty popular in NZ to keep axle loads down, DC class being the most produced kiwi diesel ever (originally built as Da class with high nose). Not super powerful, but only 15 tonne on the driving axles, a common sight all around the country, later being used on Auckland suburban services.
