Road Name:New York Central
Road Number:1678
Model Introduced:1982
Product Type:Ready-to-Run
Holt painted this model such that it represents an F7 A-unit, because the NYC never had any FP7 engines (which is what the American Model model is). The FP7 is 4 feet longer to be able to store the equipment needed to support passenger car heating. He painted over the bottom headlight to better mimic an F7. He added number board dry transfers, and custom glazing for the cab door windows, as well as a working rear coupler. Photo #2 shows AM's A- and B-unit. The paint scheme was for the passenger trains. Available in the following configurations:
- single A-unit.
- A- and B-unit, with B-unit holding the sound module.
- A- and B-unit, with B-unit also powered.
- A-B-A set, with B-unit holding the sound module.

Road Name:Union Pacific (UP)
Road Number:1499
Model Introduced:1982
Product Type:Ready-to-Run
This model was reviewed in the December 1982 Model Railroader issue by Jim Hediger. He stated that the model matched all scale dimensions of the prototype engine. Jim stated, "The paintwork is well done, but the lettering and striping tends to break up a bit where it has to conform to raised details". With the Sagami motor, the engine drew 0.4A at 12V, and slipped at 0.54A at 12V. He reported a 3.14 scale miles per hour as the slow speed, and top speed was just slightly slower than what a prototype FP7 could do. It came pre-installed with Kadee HO-scale #5 couplers. Their review sample was lettered for the Union Pacific. Photo #2 shows both the A- and B-unit. Photo #3 shows Bob's UP unit modified to represent a Milwaukee Road unit with Walthers O-scale decals used. Available in the following configurations:
- single A-unit.
- A- and B-unit, with B-unit holding the sound module.
- A- and B-unit, with B-unit also powered.
- A-B-A set, with B-unit holding the sound module.
