Order received today, 10 days after I placed it. It was complete, well packed and in good condition. Too bad the Roundhouse gondolas I bought a total crap!
I would not order from them again, due to the misleading ways they answered my questions.

Buff,  I have a lot of Roundhouse products that are very good. 

You have been replying to every single post in every single thread.  These posts are mostly superfluous and detract others from reading the main issue or question.  Relax and read awhile until you learn what is going on.  The forum is not a contest to count the number of posts.

I've run the Roundhouse 4-4-0's, and 2-6-0's, and the Overland Coaches. I was impressed! The older roundhouse RS3's handrails were a pain to install.

Well, they do have a lot of very good items, but a few stink...
but life-like- they run somewhat good, but are very crappy, I can prove life-like.

I guess Santa Fe Buff doesn't have any Proto 2000 locomotives.  Except for the gear problem on a few models they are usually very good runners & I have had very few problems with them.  The Proto cars are also nice.

Oh, I don't but I've seen them, the Proto 2000 locomotives blow out the regular ones I have! They are top brand, but still don't beat Bachmann. The Proto 1000 is pretty okay, but nothing like the 2000 series.

I have some Roundhouse steamers that are very good runners.

How many Proto 2000 locomotives do you have and how do they run? DC or DCC?

IMHO, P2k diesels are superior to Bachmann Spectrum Diesels, and their Steam is just as good.

The items I referred to are Roundhouse Products, 40' gondolas. The the threaded stud where the coupler attaches breaks off with the slightest force. It is just very cheap pot metal.

I have none, but two standard Life-Like locomotives that run pretty good until one's wiring fell apart and the other one has engine trouble, I use my powered Spectrum by Bachmann Amtrak F40PH to help it. The one that broke was an GP38-2 with only two-wheeled trunks and the engine troubled one is an EMD F7 with a NASCAR logo on it.
