Why the extra 6000 feet of margin for error? I could understand 1000 extra feet. But 6000 feet?

Trains are operating on a headway of 90 seconds (40 tph). An observer is at a fixed point. The first train comes along at time T = 0 and continues travelling at 75 ft/sec. The second train comes to the same point 90 seconds later (T = 90). How far has the first train travelled?

s = v x t = 75 ft/sec x 90 sec = 6750 ft.
