Repaint of Feather River DLC F7 as the green/white FP7 of Southern RR

This is a repaint of the F7 A unit from the Feather River Canyon DLC to represent the four FP7s of the Southern Railroad in the late 1970s/early 80s. 
A little liberty has been taken in the repaint, specifically regarding numbers - due to the modelling of the Default F7 itself and my limited computing abilities, there is no way to have the roadnumbers also appearing on the side of the locomotive in gold lettering, therefore I chose to just leave them off and let the black/white numberboards reflect the roadnumber.  Also, the FP7s were numbers 6138, 6141, 6143, and 6147 until sometime in the early/mid 1980s (best I can tell) when they swtiched to 349x.  These units would usually pull either inspection or excursion trains during this time period and as such, Harry Adkins' excellent Southern repaint of the G-Trax Lightweight Passenger Cars makes for a really neat and accurate consist to run.  These can be found on the railworksamerica file library.  As well, this repaint reflects similar but different locomotives (FP7s instead of the F7) which is slightly longer, has different grab irons over the windshields, and probably several rivets misplaced for anyone who's counting.  This is meant to be a fun approximation.
Easiest way is to extract the "SOU" folder located in this zipped file following the folder directory paths provided.  This means that the "SOU" folder should end up on your hard drive looking something like "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\FeatherRiver\RailVehicles\Diesel\F7\SOU". 
Next, copy over the "AUnit_36_37CFe.GeoPcDx" file from the F7\Default\Engine folder which will probably be found in FeatherRiverAssets.ap file (don't worry, .ap files are zip, Winrar should open it fine) into your new "SOU\Engine" folder.  Now, you also need to copy over the "Bogies", "Cabview", "Lights", and finally "Simulation" folders from the Default F7 folder and place them in your new main "SOU" folder.
That's it!  Should appear as "EMD F7A Southern" if you're building yourself a new consist.  The "EMD F7A Southern nd" is the same thing, just with no drivers in it for MU.
Many thanks to the railworksamerica.com website and forum for guidance on repainting, and an absolute special thank you to Buzz Baxter and Kevin Schulz for the use of their Norfolk Southern F7 repaint as the orginal platform for this skin.
