Does anyone here own a Pride Lines Green Diamond or anything else by Pride Lines? While I've seen the name, I've never owned one. I'd like to know if they're nice quality. There's a Green Diamond on ebay right now that looks like it will go for plenty. No links allowed but item # is 373374756086.

Years ago, I had a Pride Lines Hiawatha. I was fortunate to live close to their establishment because my loco had running issues. Basically, it was built to tolerances that were a little too tight. They replaced the motor and it was a great runner. It was done free of charge by the way, so they stood behind their products. BTW, Bill Davanzo had a **** of a train collection on display in the lobby. Stuff of fantasies.
Were you able to win the auction ?
I was one of the watchers.
There are a few running issues . But I love the quality.
I have quite a few Pride Lines items. I am learning there pros and cons.
I was able to purchase some Green Diamond parts from a former employee and am building my own.
I like it too but I’m more into standard gauge than o gauge so I didn’t try real hard to win that auction. Coincidentally, I was on a Stout auction this morning and a Pride Lines O gauge silver M10000 in like new condition sold for around $350 if I recall correctly. The same one sold on eBay for $1300 although it did have a few more cars included.
