Holt's model is of the older "kit" version of this engine (the second photo is of the stock, ready-to-run version American Models currently sells). Holt improved the handrails and cab steps, which were painted orange (with some weathering). He replaced the side grills with the perforated ones still sold by Des Plaines Hobbies. He also added the road numbers to the number boards, and AF-compatible couplers.
