Holt used the front and rear cab glazing, plus headlights, but omitted the cab side windows for better airflow. He painted the end handrails yellow as on the prototype CNJ RS3. Dry transfers from his spare parts were applied to the number boards, and he installed the working hi-rail couplers. The CNJ RS-3 was apparently a limited edition kit, offered for a short time, and is no longer available from AM.

Product Type:Plastic
Finishpainted & lettered
Also produced as SHS #00432 (road number 1223). Holt took one of his ICG engines and repainted it for the NH (see Photo #2). Holt adds that the SHS ICG SW9, with its orange cab, is a good repaint subject for the NH SW1200. Externally the two engines are identical. He hand-painted two coats of Model Master black enamel, with orange and white trim. Lettering and numbers came from Microscale decals and various dry transfers. Prototype photos confirm the scheme and numbers. The New Haven RR SW1200 yard switchers, #s 640 - 659, were the first EMD diesels ordered by the NH after years of Alco orders. They arrived in 1956, in the new black and orange McGinnis scheme, and served for 20+ years into the Conrail era.
