All About Postage Stamp Trains
F9-B Powered Diesels

Catalog Numbers

To my knowledge, a Pennsylvania F9-B was only available as a dummy.

  • 4854 Santa Fe
  • 4855 Penn Central
  • 4856 Baltimore & Ohio
  • 4857 Union Pacific

Note that it's very difficult to find B&O diesels in good shape. The gold printing is not durable: it fades, and is sometimes almost completely worn off by the Styrofoam nest. Also, the light grey paint chips easily.

Production of these locos continued until the late 1990s, when Trix went bankrupt, and their buyer, Märklin, ended the production of all North American models. In addition to being sold under the Minitrix brand, they were rebranded by Model Power and Con-Cor.

Example Box Labels

Given that each road name has a unique catalog number, the road codes included on the packaging seem a bit redundant. Odd, too, that they didn't always do it.
