     Since you can obtain the data for the SD-35, can you tell me the
data for the SD-7/9?
I'm going to try to use the chassis of an SD-7/9 for this project and
need to know if I
should lengthen or shorten the frame.  It may actually be better for me
to use the SD-40

   By the way, my PC roster now contains U-25C 6513; engine number 27.
I'm finding
that I may have to build another roundhouse or engine shed!
