This is a repaint of the RSC/DTG Kawasaki M8 to "represent" a Metro North M7A

TS2017 - Metro North Railroad M7A EMU. Version 1.0
(26 July 2017).

Model and Original Textures by DTG/RSC.
This version published via Steam. 
Repaint textures by (springer6).
Requires the "Train Simulator: Metro-North Kawasaki M8 EMU Add-On" as supplied via Steam.
Some essential M8 .GEOPCDX files omitted from this repaint for security.

This repaint has been made to give a "REPRESENTATION" of the MTA Metro North Railroad M7A EMU.
It cannot be 100% accurate as the Kawasaki M8 differs in many ways to the Bombardier M7A.
The M7A is a  750 volt Third Rail only unit and so it does not have a pantograph. Therefore I have chosen to repaint only the Third Rail versions of the M8 (T prefix, see manual). The "preload" consists included, use only the "B " units, i.e. those without pantographs. I recommend that, for improved realism, you use only the non panto units in your own consists. This does mean however that there will be no passenger view in such consists, as the passenger view is ailiased to the "A" non panto. units.If you require a passenger view for a scenario, you will have to include at least one "A" pantograph car in your driven consist. There is a custom interior/passengerview with "representative" Metro North Harlem/Hudson Line colours. The preloaded consists will work in Quick Drive scenarios, but will only load for Quick Drives on sections of the route equipped with Third Rail electrification. They should generate AI traffic as appropriate on the New York- New Haven route.
The M7A has custom 4xxx series numbers. There are some Metro North Hudson/Harlem Line destinations. M7As should be common (for realism) on the Grand Central-Yankees and Grand Central-Mount Vernon West sections of the New York-New Haven route.
As for the default M8 except:(number format=T#4xxx, where #=destination letter)
k= Mount Vernon West, i=Wassaic, m=Yonkers, n=Croton-Harmon.
FOR  LIRR M7 & M9 {not included}:
R=Long Island City, S=Jamaica, T= Ronkonkoma, U= Babylon, V= Atlantic Terminal, W= East Williston, X= Far Rockaway, Y= Long Beach, Z= Hempstead, a=East Williston, b= West hempstead, c= Port Washington, d= Huntington.
