S-Helper Service Central Railroad of New Jersey RS-3

Manufacturer:S-Helper Service
Category:RS-3
Road Name:Central Railroad of New Jersey
Road Number:1545
Model Introduced:1991
Product Type:Ready-to-Run
Initially financed by S-Helper Service and manufactured by American Models, with the initial run sold in an S-Helper Service box. 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.
