Specific Item Information: N scale FP9 and F9B models are painted for the KCS executive train. The car bodies are red, yellow, and Brunswick green. The lettering on each side is yellow. The models have etched metal grilles, wire grab iron details, and Micro-Trains® couplers. The smooth powerful drive is DCC ready.
A F9 can be distinguished reliably from a late F7 only by the addition of an extra filter grille ahead of the front porthole on the side panels on A units. Internally, the use of an 567C prime mover increased power to 1,750 hp from the F7's 1,500 hp.
By the time cab units such as the F9 were built, railroads were turning to the road switcher-style of locomotive, and the F9 was succeeded in most part by the EMD GP9.
