EMD SW8/900 switchers were the utilitarian locomotives that railroads and industries loved for heavy-duty chores. Denizens of yards and industrial districts, these burly little units were, and still are, ideal for use on light-railed lines. Because of their versatility, Walthers PROTO 2000 HO Scale SW8s are perfect for your post-1950 railroad. The SW8 shared an identical carbody with the SW600 and SW900, so these units are accurate for these prototypes as well.
