Locomotive: Shay or SW1

I've not decided between these two locos, for each has advantages and disadvantages. The Shay is more fitting for such a line, but it won't run on Rail Craft Code 40 flex without having its flanges turned down. The Arnold SW1 may be a little modern, but it still fits the logic of the layout (the Boston & Maine had them), and it also runs on Code 40 flex as-is. The SW1 would obviate the need for the water tower, which I might rework as disused.
