BLI Steam Loco Tender

I recently bought a BLI Hudson 4-6-4 and have noticed it has two holes to connect the tender.
What is the reason for this?

The hole closest to the engine would be for closer, more realistic coupling.  The furthest hole is used so that the tender and engine dont touch when going around tight radius curves.

Thanks for that, I suspected as much.
The little platform on the rear of the loco fits nicely over the edge of the tender on the closest hole and looks more realistic. I'm running on a minimum of 26" radius curves so will leave it there.
