If the locomotives are directly connected to each other, there are what's called "MU" connections between them. These MU connections consist of 3-4 air hoses plus an electrical cable. MU stands for Multiple Unit.
If the locomotives are not directly connected, such as in distributed power, the communications between locomotives is by radio.
