Stock number for the Twin Pairs carried the number "226," for example a set of Union Pacific Twin F-9s would be T226N. The Twin F's are $15.98 in the 1967-68 catalog. The Twins drop from sight in the 1968-69 and 1969-70 catalogs. The Twin F-9s return in the 1970-71 catalog retailing for $16.00 that year.

The Powered Kit is back in 1964-65, 1965-66 and 1966-67 for $8.98, but the Non-Powered Kit is no longer listed after the 1963-64 catalog. The Powered Kit is listed with a $9.98 retail in the 1967-68 catalog. Kits are not listed in the 1968-69, 1969-70, and 1970-71 catalogs.

EMD F9-A Diesel Locomotive
Baltimore & Ohio -Metalized Chrome
No. T224-AC -1964 Release
Perhaps the first use of chorme-plating by TYCO are the mid-'60s B&O, Santa Fe, and Atomic Energy Commission F-9As.  From the looks of the Baltimore & Ohio example, it appears it did not follow any prototypical paint scheme used by the B&O.  The chrome B&O F-unit is noted in the TYCO catalog as being offered only in RTR examples. TYCO catalogs this item through 1966.

Burlington Northern 
No. T224-S
No catalog appearances for this BN F9-A, but with the creation of the Burlington Northern happening in March 1970 and the TYCO Red Box switching to Brown Box shortly after this date, this would have to be among the last of the Red Box Era loco releases.

EMD F9-A Diesel Locomotive
Canadian National
No. T224-K  -1961 Release
There remains some debate on TYCO's numbering for the Canadian National F-9A models.  The image above is from an early '70s catalog and shows the unit with a roadnumber of 6536.  Examples have also been viewed with the same CN paint scheme, but a roadnumber of 4751.  No positive information is available for which or whether both numbers where sold in TYCO's Red Boxes and there could also be yet more roadnumber(s) out there too.

TYCO produced a variety of different paint variations for its Penn Central F-9A offerings.  Exact information regarding which one(s) appear in Red Box and which do not has not been confirmed.  All the PC F's share the light green color and have silver grilles on their sides.  The differences between them are roadnumbers (4751; 9451; 9769) and variations in the coloring of the inter-locked "PC" logo.  Some TYCO examples feature all-white lettering and "PC" logo, while others feature white lettering with a white-P and a red-C logo.

No.T224-HC  -1964 Release
The chrome Santa Fe F-9s matched the paint scheme used by TYCO on its regular release passenger livery ATSF F-9's, chrome plating is substituted for the silver paint on the model.  All three of TYCO's mid-'60s chromed F-9 locos are noted in catalogs as being RTR products only.  In addition to Santa Fe, TYCO also offered B&O and Atomic Energy Commission chrome F-9's between 1964 and 1965.
The above chrome plated TYCO Santa Fe F9-A appears to be missing the railroad's name down its side.
