In general, unit oil trains are only 3/5 to perhaps 2/3 the length of an average coal train. A point demonstrated in this shot as you would not be able to get both ends of a coal train in this frame. The head end of unit empty oil train is about to head into Tunnel 1 as the covered hopper buffer car on the rear rolls clear of the hot box detector at MP 22.6.
