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.

IS this a HSP? Looks different.

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

Believe GE is on the hook to replace all the HSP-46 turbos,has GE set up shop at BET or at "Area 52" to do the work?

The 2002 has returned from Erie after having warranty work on it done:

I remember reading somewhere that the MBTA had a two-year warranty on the HSP-46s. Since we've had these locos since 2014ish, how does that work? Two total years of use?

Didn't they have some unreasonable problems with turbos failing? And pieces of said turbos going into the engines?

It just amazes this poster after all this time turbos still fail.. not just loco but various other thypes of gas and diesel engines. Why do buildrs try to design the wheel all over ?
