Mike, my apologies for the misunderstanding, I got it now! BTW, that sounds like it would be a cool chase. Short unit trains are always fascinating.
Probably Anhydrous Ammonia.

It doesn't matter how short the run is, you must have at least one buffer car at all times. I work a roadswitcher that goes 10 miles out of town and switches some industries and we always take one buffer car. Of course, sometimes the crew "forgets" the buffer car so you might see a train without any.
