Reply to "Headend cars on PRR mp54 commuter train consists?"

I am by far not the MP54 expert but……

P54 coaches could be hauled by steam locos because they were not powered.

MP54 were powered. I have not seen an unpowered car of any kind in a MP54 train. If a baggage was needed a MP54 type car was added. See photo.
