Not proclaiming to know everything, (b/c believe me, I sure don't) but a quick and common way to spot the difference between the Dash-8 and Dash-9 is in the style of truck. (though I'm sure there HAS to be an exception that will get pointed out)

I'm not sure of the name, but the dash 9's have a 'blockier' look about them. I think they have improved rail adhesion, or something like that...
