Atlas Trainman HO Scale EMD GP38-2, Standard DC, New Hampshire Northcoast #3825
Atlas Item #: 10003598
The Dash 2 locomotive series, unveiled by EMD in 1972, featured significant changes, such as a solid-state, modular electrical control system and improved engine components designed to increase traction and reduce exhaust emissions. A reliable work-horse, the GP38-2 remains one of the most successful locomotives ever built. Most are still in service today.
