In desperate need of repaint, like most IIO&E units, this SD38-2 is part of the IIO&E, is an ex-EJ&E unit.

38-2's are great when you have heavy loads that dont need to go anywhere fast. One of my fav's actually :)

I always loved the EJ&E SD38-2s and yea those ethanol trains are pretty long and heavy, the 38-2s are mainly used for that or a through frieght on occasion. :D

As most of you can see, all IIO&E units are in need of repaint. I'm sorry to report the 38-2's will be the first to get the bucket. :cry:
