PROTOTYPE AND BACKGROUND INFO:

The GP38-2 series of locomotives were some of EMD’s most successful designs. Produced from 1970s to mid 1980s the GP38-2 and GP50 were quickly found in many different tasks of the railroad. From switching to pulling high priority freight trains across country, these versatile locomotives could be seen all over North America. Many of these locomotives are now being rebuilt with ecologically sound emission control for higher population centers. A new era emerges as technology meets proven reliability for these EMD products.
