I saw that there's no intermediate car (8578, which is now on BNSF 1230) on BNSF 1236 and 1257. is it true?

1236/1257, an 11-car set had 8578 for the longest time positioned 7 cars back, cutting the 4 rear cars for weekend service. Now, there is no cab car positioned at an intermediate spot on that particular set. A coach car has taken its place.
