In the early 1990s Railmaster began adding standard-gauge diesel kits to their fine line of Sn3 locomotive kits. The Alco RS-1 kit consists of finely-detailed pewter (soft-metal) castings, including truck sideframes, plus investment-cast brass detail parts and assorted wire. North Yard makes a drive for this locomotive (available from Railmaster). This particular specimen, built by Dick Karnes, is powered by an American Models RS-3 chassis with SouthWind/BTS brass truck sideframes. Microscale decals, MV lenses. S Kadee couplers. These kits are still manufactured by Railmaster Exports in New Zealand (available direct only). The article link takes you to Peter Vanvliet's web site where he shows how he built one of these kits (also see Photo #2, which shows a battery box in front of the cab, which was a scratchbuilt add-on detail to make the model PRR-specific). A product review of this kit can be found in the April 1992 issue of the 3/16 "S"cale Railroading magazine (includes brief instructions on how to use the AM RS-3 chassis)
