EMD® GT38ACL

The EMD® GT-Series locomotive platform includes GT38AC, GT42AC and GT46AC models. These locomotives integrate EMD® 710-Series engines together with AC traction technology to provide superior efficiency and performance for a broad range of operations. We pioneered development of AC traction for heavy haul diesel-electric locomotives, and today thousands of EMD® AC locomotives operate worldwide providing enhanced adhesion performance and lower life cycle costs.
