Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. An EMD SD38AC is a 6-axle diesel locomotive built by General Motors Electro-Motive Division between June and October 1971. It was basically an SD38 with an AR10 alternating current alternator instead of the SD38's normal direct current generator. It produces 2000 horsepower from a 16-cylinder EMD 645E roots blown prime mover. It came equipped with or without dynamic brakes. This locomotive shared the same common frame with the SD39, SD38, SD40 and SD45. The SD38AC is basically the transition engine between the SD38 and the SD38-2. 15 examples of this model were built; 6 for B&LE, 8 for DMIR and one for BC Hydro.show more
