The manifests that run over the Moffat, whether it be UP or BNSF, are frequently dominated by tank cars. In fact, I would say that tank cars are likely the most common type of car found on the Moffat these days. Obviously coal hoppers would have been the obvious choice a few years ago, but the coal drought continues into 2017. In fact, at the time of this picture, there hadn't been a coal train (loaded or empty) on the Moffat in five days!
