my ESPEE MODELERS ARCHIVE
California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
Southern Pacific E-9
N Scale custom painted and decaled Halloween E9A by James of Sydney
There is - for modelers - for all intents and purposes, no external differences (other than RR options) between E-8's and E-9's. The differences were mostly mechanical, stronger traction motors, more powerful engines and larger steam generators.
One thing that will need adding to most LifeLike models of E9's will be a 48" pan-top dynamic fan to the blank center roof panel. LifeLike for some strange reason missed this completely. even as an option... and SP E9A'a had this fan.
A model of an E-8, is therefore quite acceptable as a stand-in for the E-9.
All units received red/gray paint starting late 1958.
Some of the more 'outstanding' changes are:
No E-9's were renumbered in the systemwide renumbering of 1965.
