I agree, is the best place, they have constant sales and their prices are the lowest around.

That's a BLI model!
Look at the box it says Broadway limited on the logo.
To expensive!
The sound system is, to say it mildly, disappointing.
I put a Tsu1000 into mine.

I found a nice C16 in On30 on Ebay for $409.91, tax included It's fully detailed and ready to roll.
It's made by Korea Brass (just not made out of brass).
Any good?

I usually buy my models off ModelTrainStuff, and I don't usually run into glaring issues like you did. I don't think it's the site. You must have gotten defective models.

Model train stuff is the website that is the most affordable to me and has wonderful service. However no matter the website there will most likely alway be shipping costs. I highly recommend going to train shows and look for the items you need. They’ll most likely have more then what you need and they’re very entertaining as well.

By this point, I just feel like giving up. Because of the outbreak, it's likely I'll never be able to get my Arry issue fix as there's a tweet that it's more likely that they're gonna be closed for the next month. If they're not gonna be open by next Monday, I'm just sell this Arry and buy him from another site as I just feel like nothing's done.

If someone at the workshop would've know that how Arry wasn't working properly right away, then maybe this whole issue would've been avoid. But instead they just said they tested it, even though I know there's something wrong with it. And I can't send it to any local shops as non-essential business' are closed at the while.

The lesson I learned from this whole calamity is to never buy anything from ModelTrainStuff, because whenever I get something from them, there's a fault (Both the Ironwork Twins failed, and Oliver got a scratch on his right pupil).

Just sent in my repair request.

BLI for the aficionado's, Broadway Limited Imports for others. Grin
They used to make one model in 0n30,  you guessed it , Yes the C16.
Used to make, sound familiar?
Most examples can nowadays be found on Ebay for inflated prices.
I bought mine being patient and jumping on them in time when possible for reasonable prices.

For decals have a look at San Juan Decals.

Thanks,Ton They are set to arrive tomorrow via Fedex. I'll test all 3 of them for that problem. It doesn't surprise one little bit.You get that a lot,even with the G Scale passenger cars that I have converted to LED lighting. I usually paint the interior of the roof in all of my  lighted Jackson Sharp passenger cars in gloss black due to this problem. I don't think that would work very well in this case as I assume that you're indicating that this is a problem with the car bodies.
Repainting the interiors of all 3 cars sounds like a real pain. I'm already working with the one combine that I mentioned. If I decide to try fixing this issue, I may mask off the black area with the road names, and then repaint the bodies in Pullman Green with black roofs, leaving the road name intact. I already have one G Scale car (LGB) that a previous owner did that to, and it looks pretty nice.
 I'll figure it out one way or the other.
That book you mention sounds quite intriguing and definitely helpful to modelers who are looking to create a train with an authentic appearance.
I am unfamiliar with BLI.
Are your BLI C-16's On30,or other?
 I know that Delton made some very nice C-16's in Large Scale, and I've considered purchasing one ,or two, but they would likely have a hard time running on my limited,5ft diameter rails.
Oh well.Maybe some day!

A few more progress photos today.

I'm about 95% complete on ballasting.  Don't want to head out and buy any more ballast as our Governor has asked us not to venture out unless necessary right now.

Down to the last few feet in the back of the layout.  Perhaps scenery will make it unnecessary to ballast again the backdrop:

I threw some coal under the loading area, mostly to help stretch out my supply of ballast:

This is where I ran out of ballast.  I have started to build up the area where the mountain will carry to the backdrop.  Tunnel walls installed with hot glue:

After the ballast is dry, I run a "vacuum" test.  The vacuum sucks up any ballast where the glue didn't quite soak in.  A little repair required here.

I can crawl under the layout and access the tunnel if something goes wrong in here:
