I was not the one to resize it, the author had made an update of the model because (I guess) of the e-mails he got because of its older, larger size.
It is a lower res locomotive but it was the only F40PHM-2 I could find. The original needed a couple of upgrades (cabview, sound) all of which I've gotten from NALW's F40 set. As far as the readme goes, reskinning is completely allowed!
Here's its Train-Sim zip if you're interested: f40phmmt.zip
I've got a question though
Do you know what happened to Means Locomotive Works? They seemed to have completely disappeared...

Yes it does.
I "drag raced" the 614 (in that picture) today when leaving a hardware store. The tracks and the road run parallel for about a good 3 miles, with the road speed limit the same as the rails. I drove even with the cab of the locomotive for a whole mile before the light ahead turned red. Long live the F40C!
I forgot to add: Metra sold all but 3 F40Cs, one is now in a scrapyard. They still own and now operates both the 611 and 614 since the MP36s are breaking down. They were sitting in a yard rusting away until they were needed for duty. There are rumors of Metra buying most of them back
