Ordinarily, a GP30 on the PRR would run short hood forward. However, 
depending on where the crew had to drop off cars, they might have 
occasion to run long hood forward for a while. So, while it wouldn't 
be the normal way of doing it, it wouldn't be wrong either. If that's 
the way you like to see it run, go ahead!
