Miami P32AC-DM

Since the Miami P42 looks more identical to the P32, would it be possible to modify the simulation so it would be an Amtrak P32? *!!thnx!!*

P42's and P32's behave very similarly to each other. Output torque is about 1,000lbf difference (62,000 vs 63,000) so really the only difference is the p42 can accelerate a little quicker with the extra horsepower. Just about every rating besides engine horsepower is a negligible difference unless your looking for that level of exactness.

Why I ask is because I hear most people say that the Miami P42 is essentially a repainted P32, so if we could modify it to act like a P32...
