Although this model includes many revisions to the shape files and textures to more faithfully represent a Norfolk Southern D9-40CW, it would not be possible without the excellent original model from Maple Leaf Tracks.  Many thanks to Andy Hockin of Maple Leaf Tracks for giving permission to distribute the modified model and to Paul Gausden for the use of his ubiquitous crew members.
