Probably. Nothing north is as tight as Cove. Their geographical distribution makes it such that zero F59PH/PHI's have ever run in PRR cab signal or ACSES territory before, so north-only ends up easiest for a lot of reasons.

That's not an HSP46, it's an MP36. The T owns two of them, numbered 010 and 011.
