MTH® EMD GP38-2 Diesel Locomotive, Conrail #8044, HO Scale


Produced from 1972 to 1986, the GP38-2 helped inaugurate Electro-Motive’s “Dash-2” series of locomotives and became one of EMD’s all-time best sellers. With over 2,200 engines sold throughout North America, rare was the railroad that did not roster these reliable, second-generation EMD workhorses.

This HO scale Conrail version of the GP38-2 MTH is part of MTH's economically priced Ready2Rail lineup. While Ready2Rail locomotives have fewer added-on details than standard M.T.H. motive power, Proto-Sound 3.0 versions feature the same versatile electronics and prototypical sounds found in every Proto-Sound 3.0 engine. In command mode, you can operate this second-generation stalwart with any other DCC- or M.T.H. DCS-equipped models. With the DCS system, you can create a lashup with just a few keystrokes, combining one or more GP38-2s with other Proto-Sound 3.0 first, second, or third-generation diesels, and run them all from a single throttle just like the prototype.
