Yes and no.

 

It's more like an identity crisis.  For good or bad, S is mostly associated with Gilbert American Flyer. 

 

I know the scale crowd would wish that perception would go away, but it's never going to happen. 

 

Plus, S suffered the most from Sanda Kan firing their customers.

 

However, with Lionel making bona-fied scale detailed and compatible products like the SD70 and MTH joining the fray with the former SHS line, there should come more recognition of S in all it's forms; traditional, hirail and scale.
