K2439-0269   LIRR George McSherry GP38-2 Diesel Engine, Real Sounds® Long Island
    $333.00 ea.    


This GP38-2 Diesel Engine accurately reproduces a common sight in the Long Island, New York area. As seen on the rails of the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR), the prototype for this K-LINE® Geep has logged millions of miles in daily service over the non-electrical portions of the railroad. Since 1976 the GP38-2 Engine has been an integral part of the LIRR's fleet of diesels.

The LIRR's 28 Geeps (Nos. 250-277) have been used in all types of service on the LIRR, and have demonstrated outstanding reliability. The LIRR's GP38-2s carry name plaques that dedicate each engine to distinguished LIRR employees.

GP38-2 Engine #269 is dedicated to the late George B. McSherry, who worked with the LIRR for over 20 years, and served as General Chairman. His memory is honored by the plaque bearing his name attached to the locomotive bearing the same number as that of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers (BLE) local division he served with distinction.

LIRR info provided by George M. Maccarone, Jr., Locomotive Engineer, Long Island Rail Road.
