Railroads used the SD38 for heavy drag and hump yard service. Nearly 50 years after their introduction, many of these rugged locomotives are still on the rails - most having been through multiple owners and paint schemes. Lionel's models include many detail variations to capture unique features of each road's locomotives including different fuel tank sizes, dynamic brakes, pilot and roof details, even truck side frames. With LEGACY and Bluetooth, these brutes are ready to start moving the tonnage on your layout!
