If one has the patience for it, S is certainly an option.
Here's some Santa Fe that's been available.
MTH (ex SHS) F3's, S-Helper F7's (unfortunately not currently available,) AM SF Budd cars in the background.
American Models GP9's (still available) w/details added.
American Models 2900 class 4-8-4's (Left, dolled up a little. Right, straight from the box. (Still available with scale wheels.)
Plus AM has a Baldwin S12 in zebra stripe and E8's available. Both S-Helper and MTH offered EMD switchers in Santa Fe
Rusty - I've been looking at pictures of your layout for 6 years! It's too bad I didn't just start in S then.
Those Baldwin Northerns are inspiring. There's nothing in large scale steam approaching accurate for ATSF and the only HO company manufacturing them (BLI) does not inspire much confidence in me - based on the comments from even their most devoted fan base.
I know MTH is closing. Has there been any hints at someone picking up the S Helper Line?
