F59PHI

I'm looking for a sound file for a F59PHI.  It's a 12cyl EMD.  I looked through ESU's downloads and can't seem to find anything.  Does anyone have this locomotive and if so, what sound file did you use?

Thanks in advance for your help!

The F59PHI was equipped with an EMD 12-cylinder turbocharged 710G3C-EC prime mover.

ESU has several 16-cyl 710G3 files, but no 12-cylinder file.  I'd probably use one of the 16-cylinder versions (probably the Tier 2 version) until a 12-cylinder becomes available.  Given the widespread use of the F59 in passenger service, got to believe recording one is on Matt Hermann's to do list.
