While searching for a heavy crew to add to #10, I recalled that Andrew C Stadden had introduced HO scale figures into his line of pewter figures a couple of years ago. A search through my email turned up his website.
Although they are not inexpensive, and the Loonie is in the dumps right now, I had a positive USD Paypal balance burning a hole in may pocket, and so, I decided to spend some of it on these figures. None of them is right for a locomotive crew, but they look great on the website, and they’re right for my era.
The small packet from the UK arrived while we were in Disneyland this weekend, only a week after I ordered them. Each pack contained five men and five women, chastely separated inside the package.
I ordered three sets, and I must say I am delighted. These figures are little works of art! They are cast in pewter with very very little flash.
All the people are all in Pendon poses, which makes them easy to use on a layout, compared with the Pompeii poses you often get from, say, Preiser. I can’t wait to paint some up and put them on the layout! Wait, we need another layer layout to put them on first!
