In the 1960s EMD identified a need for a medium-horsepower roadswitcher with no turbocharger for improved reliability. With the rack settings on its 16-cylinder 645 prime mover set at a very conservative 2,000 horsepower, tried-and-true traction motors and other proven components the GP38 sold well, but the addition of easy-to-maintain modular electronics made its successor, the GP38-2, the runaway favorite. "Dash 2s" could be found on mainline freights and locals, handling yard and heavy industrial switching, even moving commuter and long-distance passenger trains!
