My 2 cents is usually only worth 1 cent when it comes to motive power.
Since I'm DCC "stupid" I can't say anything about whether they are an
easy fit but I have been able over the past year to collect 5 Atlas
S-1' ( or 2' s? ) from Ebay. Some I paid as little as $35 ( new) and
was able to get a used one for under $25. ( God how I love Ebay )
The Proto 2000 switchers that I have purchased are beautiful and even
though run well, They have a hard time ( for me ) pulling more than
12-14 weighted cars in and out the yard. Doubling them up is
protypical, but to "me", I'd rather switch with one loco.
