Those look more like F59PH to me, not F59PHI.
TRE loves running ex-Go F59PH locomotives, I see no reason why VIA wouldn't like them too.
TRE F50PH (ex-Go)
TRE F59PHI (purchased new)
TRE loves the EMD F59PH locomotives so much they recently bought an additional (3) from Go (#562,563,564) to go with the (4) they purchased from Go (#565,566,567,568) a decade ago (all model IV)
Go has F59PH locomotives for sale because they recently purchased (47) MPI MP40PH-3C locomotives to run longer trains on several routes, making some of their F59PH locomotives redundant. Frankly, I surprised VIA hasn't bought more ex-Go locomotives..
