DM&IR SD38 #221

The SD38 made a name for itself in heavy drag freights and busy hump yards from the hills of Minnesota to the sprawling yards of the Northeast. Though production numbers were small compared to the similar SD40, many of these locomotives would change hands several times over their long careers some of which continue to this day. Featuring new tooling and building on the many features of our SD40 locomotive, Lionel is proud to finally bring these EMD underdogs to O Gauge! These models will feature numerous prototype and road-number specific details.
