The SD38-2 and SD38-2S fleet is typically used in hump yards as hump power.

I figured as such.

The SD38 units on CSX came via the Conrail split, and were originally mated to MT-6 former Alco yard slugs for use in hump service. I think most of the MT-6 units have been reassigned to other yard power. The five original SD38-2s came from the SBD/L&N.

The straight SD38s from Conrail are long gone. In addition to the 5 ex L&N SD38-2s, CSX also has a small fleet of derated SD40-2s now called SD38-2Ss.

What did they do take the turbocharger out of the SD40's to derate them?

Nope, they’re still turbocharged, just like the GP38-2S units. I believe they detune them by dropping the RPMs, or just limiting power at higher notches.

Go back in those thread to the prior update. Not much has changed since.

After 30 years, is CSX starting to methodically unwind its Road Slug program? I’ve noticed a few 6400-series GP40-2s in Michigan without their semi-permanently coupled RDSLUG partner. Or have there just been some major failures in the slug department which just have been deemed not worthy of repair? It seems like slugs used to find occasional/regular assignment on locals in Michigan but not anymore.

I believe all of the former GP30 RDMTs have been stored and are in the process of being retired along with most or all of the GP35 RDMTs. I’ve heard various reasons for their retirement (PTC could not be retrofitted or would be too costly/complicated to retrofit) but I think the biggest reason is they are OLD! I think the only active road slugs are the newer ones rebuilt from GP38s and GP40s.
