Depended on commodity.  In general, no closer than 6th car from occupied engine or caboose "if train length permits".  SOU considered all locomotives occupied as does NS.  A tank car also can't be next to a shiftable load.  No restrictions in terms of engines/cabooses on diesel which is considered combustible, not dangerous.

No restrictions for covered hoppers.  Placement restrictions for tank cars only.

Anyone have access to a Southern Special System Instructions for the late 1970s (or equivalent document for the era) pertaining to the location of a hazmat car within a train? In particular, how many non-hazmat cars would be placed between a locomotive or cab and a covered hopper containing ammonium nitrate.
