Excuse me, but the topic of this thread is "Unit Trains" not how much stuff do you own.

Sounds like I've wandered into someone's sand box who can't stand outsiders.
Take care.

What is this? Are you the sole arbitrator of what is an isn't in model trains? You were talking about unit trains and can you do that with O-gauge. I'm sorry that I don't have enough track to do that at home, probably why I belong to the club! Nobody is trying to tell you anything, as I recall it was you that was questioning if we could do this in O-gauge. I didn't get the memo that it had to be my personal layout or I couldn't post, I'll be sure to adhere to the new standards next post.

Do we really want to have this conversation?

Using DCS and Scale MPH, I will follow the unit train with the "screwdriver express".

A gondola with Smirnoff's miniatures, a Seagram's Vdoka reefer, and a flat with OJ crates.

This is the Smirnoff's car.

Here is Wikipedia's definition

And we all know that Wikipedia is 100% accurate, right?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unit_train

Here is a video. Haven't taken the time to count the cars, really don't care that much.

There are no reporting marks or car numbers on the coal cars either. Very unprotypical.
