GP38-2 Diesel Engine With Proto-Sound 3.0 (Hi-Rail Wheels) - Iowa Interstate

Cab Nos. 700

Product Number: 20-20225-1
Product Details

 

Produced from 1972 to 1986, the GP38-2 helped inaugurate Electro-Motive's "Dash-2" series of locomotives and became one of EMD's all-time best sellers. With over 2200 engines sold throughout North America, rare was the railroad that did not roster these reliable, second-generation EMD workhorses.

Building on the success of the GP38 introduced in 1966, the Dash-2 model looked almost identical on the outside but incorporated a host of internal upgrades that lowered exhaust emissions and improved reliability, ease of maintenance, and tractive effort. Most significant was the replacement of the maze of hard-wired circuits, switches, interlocks, and relays - which had characterized first-generation diesels and had been the source of many of their service issues - with modular, solid-state electronics. Other improvements toughened the pistons, rings, and bearings of the 2000-horsepower, non-turbocharged model 645 prime mover.

The result was an engine so hard working and dependable that it became as common on American railroads as the F-unit was in the 1950s and '60s. Trains magazine recognized this in 1982 by designating B&O GP38 (a pre-Dash-2 model) as the All American Diesel; the engine resides today in the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum, repainted in its 1982 Chessie System colors. Many GP38-2s have soldiered on for more than three decades and remain in service today on short lines and regional railroads.

While our Premier model is not the only O gauge version of this second-generation stalwart, it offers the best combination of detail, realism, and performance of any 1/48 scale GP38-2. Added-on detail parts include windshield wipers, metal see-thru body grilles, lift rings, metal grab irons and handrails, and see-thru rooftop fan housings, as well as brake cylinders, air pipes, and swing hangers on our super-detailed Blomberg trucks. And in command mode with the DCS system, you can create a lashup combining one or more GP38-2s with other Proto-Sound 3.0 first- or second-generation power - and run them all from a single throttle just like the prototype.

    What's a max bid?
    Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
    We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
    Max bidding example:
    If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
    If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
    However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
    By submitting your bid, you'll be contractually committing to buy this item from the seller if you are the winning bidder.
