I'd say so. The key, visually, is the deep box around the springs.
Kadee has 'em in metal, Bowser in plastic (both with and without coil-
elliptic springs), and Sunshine did some nice die cast metal ones,
(again, both with and without coil elliptic springs).

Check out Red Caboose's "2D-F8" truck (there are dashes in these PRR
classes). I think you will find that the side frame matches the Type
Y design, although the detail for the end of the truck bolster is PRR.

ARA Type Y, which was, of course, derived from the PRR 2DF8 design.
