Every railroad (and train layout) finds themselves short on motive power every once in a while. GATX provides locomotive rental/leasing services, hence their GATX decorated locomotives can be seen on any railroad at any time. Therefore, this loco would look great on any layout or in any collection.  This 100% Lionel made and decorated SD38 features all of the standard Lionel Legacy features that are included in Lionel’s regular Legacy locos, including Bluetooth, smoke unit, dual motors, sound system, Legacy control, etc. Only 25 locomotives are being made and they're due later this year since these were piggybacked onto Lionel's 2019 cataloged announcements.

Mike and Vic, you're right.  The color of the Lionel model is just a computer generated image.  It's hard to get it to accurately reflect the real color.  Even the photo of the real loco is deceiving.  Google GATX 3310 and Google GMTX 3310 and you'll see that the real loco looks quite different depending on the lighting in the photo.  We study multiple prototype photos, not just one, when we picked the color.

The color will be Pantone 293c.  Even if you Google that color code, you'll see there's a variety of hues.

Thanks for your interest … especially you Mike!
