Im sure theres a good reason why Norfolk Southern got rid of all the gp38's and 40's but not the gp38-2's and gp40-2's. Just wondering and what is the difference between them

That's the only way to keep a reliable fleet. CR did plenty of that in my time (I'm in my late 30's). Growing up I saw plenty of older and newer SW's, some GP10's, and the GP15's when they were relatively new along the GP38/38-2's. The GP30/35's were still around. Most of that is long gone and now it's all GP38/40-2's. Not as much variety but those units are reliable for NS and CSX.
