Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. An EMD SD38-2 is a six-axle diesel locomotive built by General Motors Electro-Motive Division from 1972 to 1979. EMD built 83 of these medium road-switchers, which were used in both yard and mainline roles. Part of the EMD Dash 2 line, the SD38-2 was an upgraded SD38 with modular electronic control systems, HT-C trucks, and many other detail improvements. Power was provided by an EMD 16-645E 16-cylinder engine, which could generate 2000 horsepower. These units were constructed with either 3200 or 4000 U.S. gallons fuel tanks and were available with or without dynamic brakes. It shared the same 64-foot-8-inch frame as the SD40-2 and SD45-2, which gives it a length over couplers of 68 feet 10 inches.
