Well at my house there was a special Union Pacfic Run and i saw it go by, it was a 30 mph speed limit and it took 23mins and 43 secs to pass,

It has 6 Dash 9 - CEPP GM Engines pulling all those wagons.

23 mins 43 seconds? Let's figure out how long it is...

The train was 19.08413 kilometres long.
