What do people think of them? I understand that they are basically Newquida, tarted up to varying degrees. I'm particularly interested in this Rugen car. I know that there is an LGB version available. Somebody who sold me a dark green LGB RuKB coach said he had been disappointed with the way the colours turned out on the new green/cream LGB coaches when he saw them in the flesh, said they looked a bit toy-like to him, which led me to consider this Zenner one...

Hm nicely converted but a Newquida will always be a Newquida, to my mind the Coupling Plastic is somewhat Flexible which means that 2 Newquida Coaches coupled together are somewhat difficult to uncouple. This was the main reason for my getting rid of my fleet of around 8 of the nine that I had. The last one was a Red and Creme that I invested in Troeger Decals which now just sits in a Siding unused.
