Look at some of the DB and ABB locos. They look similar to this, but have buffers on them. They could be a good substitute, if you disregard the buffers, and reskin them in NJT colors.

The reason I ask is because all we have up here are old F40PHs up here pulling Horizon cars.

I just looked it up, and guess what. I was able to find some at http://www.freewebs.com/perrock/. You will also need the horn sound found at that website. The other dependacies are from Magiclands P42 package available at http://www.protrainz.com/download.htm.
