Do you mean GM's Electromotive Division (EMD) switchers rated at 600hp?
Varney made an SW1. The SW600 looked very much like later switchers, so
any current SW model could be a stand-in, or a basis for redetailing to
match a given locomotive. The major visible differences were in the cab,
exhaust stacks, and lights.

http://www.trainweb.org/oldtimetrains/GMD/history.htmb about 3/4 of the way down the page. They were 800 hp export units, but look very American.
Small diesel-hydraulic units were tried by GMD but, they were unable to develop a market for them.
The biggest were two 800 HP units (A1811 9/1959, A1812 10/1959) which were tested for some weeks on the CPR Galt Sub. between Lambton and Woodstock on local freight trains 73 and 74.

Not likely. Cost structure of introducing a new model is prohibitive
without a large pre-order market. Suppose 1,000 pre-orders, and if
that's the actual market, I estimate the item would cost a minimum of
$1,000 or more.
Have a good day,
