Road Name:Illinois Central Gulf
Road Number:1234
Model Introduced:1998
Product Type:Ready-to-Run
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.
