EMD’s diesel-electric road switcher, the GP38-2, began production in 1972 as an upgraded model of the earlier GP38. Looking almost identical to its predecessor thanks to a standard body and cab design used throughout the 1980s, the GP38-2 became widely used on railways across the country and can still be found in service today. Equipped with an Econami™ SoundTraxx sound decoder and factory-set for GP38-2 realism, the diesel package offers a choice of 5 prime movers, 16 airhorns, multiple variations of 7 bell types, 2 air compressors, 3 couplers, plus a function-activated grade-crossing signal—all in 16-bit polyphonic sound. The Econami™ sound system includes adjustable auto-notching sensitivity for prototypical operation, adjustable master volume, individual sound effect volume levels, advanced consisting, and more.
Additional features include:
• DCC sound-equipped with Econami™ Sound Value package
• dual-mode NMRA-compliant decoder
• directional headlights with Rule 17 dimming
• precision motor
• die-cast frame
• fine-scale handrails
• separately applied detail parts
• E-Z Mate Mark II couplers, front and rear
