Lately, BNSF has found a pattern for their Moffat trains that seems to be working for them. Most of their trains have had a trio of units on the point with anywhere from zero to two DPUs on the back. There certainly are exceptions depending on the specific train, but more often than not, this has been the pattern. They've also been keeping their trains relatively short...under about 60 cars...allowing them to maintain track speed. Here, a Provo-Denver is at track speed as it passes through a snowy Leyden.
