    • Best ones I have found for detail are the Maulsworld Diorama figures that I found on ebay, super nice dealer and shipping is inexpensive if ordering in quaintly just not RR figures I used the mechanic with tool box and adapted him by getting rid of the wrench and changed the tool box to a log

    • Bill, I understand where you are coming from. I am always looking for large scale figures to add to the layout. The shiny ones I find are hard to change colors so you have a variety of people. Just Plain Folk paint is dull acrylic paint so you can change the color of clothes to increase variety. Train shows is a good place to pick up people like you want. Host of the people for my houses were found at train shows.

    • Letting everybody that my business is FINE. I have been having problems with my web site. I have no way to know how to fix that. I did just join this group. Many new projects in the works. Contact me if you have any needs or wants.

    •    The way girls wears their "pants" these days, all you have to do is paint her legs black and they'll look like leggings. (A friend of my daughter's paid $240 for a pair; that's two hundred forty dollars, plus tax.)




       edit: I just KNEW I shouldn't have posted that picture of my new employee.

    • John;


      She looks like she would fit right in on my Brandywine & Gondor Railroad (the Mainline of Middle Earth).  Just how many orc heads do you think she could lop off with a single swing of that sword?


      Best, David Meashey

    • Here's some of my Maulsworld Diorama figures.  1/24th on the left, and 1/18th on the right.



      I also pointed out some Xmas figures to the wife, and she asked why I didn't have them for her decorations.  I found a set for $17.50.  Sorry for the lousy contrast in the pic, as it was backlit, and don't ask what they are doing on my Reno.  They are nominally 1/24th and the loco is 1/28th so you can draw your own conclusions.



      And on my bench, along with the guy waiting for a paint job, is a young lady, also paintless [and pantless] who is supposed to look like this.



      She will make a good conductor.

    • Yea I also got the Chinese figures for my passenger cars, not painted very well but you can't tell once they are in the car

    • January 4, 2020 9:03 PM EST
    •    Bill, I bought these to fill up passenger cars:



         And I bought some from figures from this guy for around the layout (he was good about combining shipping):



         For what it's worth.



          edit: by the way, before you buy anything, let me see what extras I have, because I always cook too much dinner for family and never failed to buy too many train things! I'd be happy to send whatever I have you can use.

    • After stating that there were not many logging figures out there is stumbled into these sold by , but if you are into that scale there are a bunch out there

    • Thanks Mark, yea I've looked there, that's where I got my seated coach figures, just not a lot of old railroad ones, what really is missing is loggers they are like no where. can find some but most are wearing hard hats which really doesn't belong back in the 30-40 era. I's too bad just plain folks went out of business they were pretty neat although woodland scenic looks like they might have some, Bill
