For us railroad freaks here in Norway, NOHAB is definitely best known for producing the locomotives such as our beloved Di3's and your MY's. I am also a modelrailroader, and I got a new Di3 in the mail just three days ago!
I see that you got your answer about the davits. One can in fact see that the davit is slightly off by just looking at it. But as Ralph said it captures the look of it very well. I like the light on top!
