The SD38-2 was introduced in 1972 and built until 1979. It is the non-turbocharged, 2000 HP version of EMD’s very successful SD40-2. The SD38-2 was produced in limited numbers, but found homes on many Class 1 railroads. They were typically used in yard service where low speeds and good tractive effort was required. Almost all are still in service today, with many being refitted as Remote Control yard locomotives.
