Hi Guys

As my BTS coal tipple project is underway, what kind of switcher engine should I use for moving coal cars off the spur into position under the tipple?

It is a really short track, with curved #4 switches and not a lot of room. As many are, the layout is mid-50's so I can have all the steam we want with a few RS-11s scattered here and there.

Would a generic industrial diesel fit in? I've been through most of the books and I know that an S would be way too big.

Appreciate any guidance......
