Attention Old timers ... Anyone got any - and most importantly: are they any good?

Improved versions of these kits are now being sold by S&R Models.
Yes, they are nice.

Thanks - the ones I'm looking at are, ahem, N&W. Did they make just one style? (I can't find my old Walthers catalog!)

I have two of them, but they're still kits because I haven't gotten around to assembling them yet.

I wouldn't call myself an "old timer" per say, but I have several of the original kits.  They are very nice, except the wheel bogies were pretty fiddly.  I understand the new ones come with Atlas bogies, which should be a big improvement.  Great stuff for 1970s-1980s piggyback trains.
