If you are into dc the lifelike sw 9/1200 which came out around 1997 are fantastic low speed runners but almost impossible to convert to dcc.
Many used ones today can be found .
Lifelike ,walthers proto rereleased a version in 2017 for dcc .
I bought the latest atlas alco s-2 and it runs well at low speed .
I will be uploading a youtube video of this switcher on my n scale jionr scene layout in the near future.
