    I want to model the Norfolk Southern F9A/F7B set put having problems finding F9s. Is the any exterior difference in them? The most I can find is a different engine and interior stuff. I want to find one in Southern paint so I can get the design right on the Norfolk Southern. I found one or two but the cost is high, and for some reason I can't bring my self to repaint a 200-300 dollar locomotive. Im not that good yet, but getting there. Im thinking of the Athearn Southern F7 in the blue box. Thanks for the help.

    Check out the October 2006 issue of Model Railroader; there is an article on page 60 that is a guide of F units. Hope this helps.
