Frank M,

   Can you please advise me as to just where you purchased your western riders, I would love to have them for my layout also.  The are simply fantastic, I have seen them no where else but in your pictures.

I was thinking to ask the same thing. Not just the western riders, but all of Frank's figures are interesting and often appear unique.

My guess is that Frank has a very good eye for finding his little people at train shows.

In my little world, I leave this troubled world behind.

Patrick, your little people live in a little world that is like heaven, where the sun always shines, and the glory that is autumn is aglow.

Arnold D. Cribari, (Gulp) ... you got me smiling ear-to-ear with that comment, sir. Thank you so very  much.  It's especially nice when one talks the same creative language as somebody else and wins their approval. I am very grateful for your feedback and your kindness in taking the time to do so.

PCRR Dave. They are hand-painted imports, metal, that Roy Baker sells. The latest number I have for him is (I am trying to read it carefully on a note he sent me recently : 1-845-887-0079).  He was having some trouble with his phone. Let me know if you are not able to get thru to him via the # I provided here.

Zeke/ Sean, Truly exceptional of you to say that. Thank you. But any good school for such craftwork would need you there as a professor ! And  I agree with Arnold , but I would add that your handsome vignettes have a distinct atmosphere and intimacy to them, uniquely their own, in my viewpoint.

I enjoy seeing all these little scenes. I have to say putting people on a layout really starts making seem more alive. Once I do start getting more scenery done I will more than likely end up putting some images up. Currently mine looks more like a Post-Apocalyptic world with not people no vehicles very few buildings, and a lot of brown. Though Post-Apocalyptic might be fun if you could do it right, but that would require some heavy weathering of engines and rolling stock to look right.

Though back on topic, These are all very well done. Something I will pursue toward in the future.

That's enjoyable to hear, TCochran. I would offer, if you please, the additional perspective that places that have few...

Dave, these are beautifully painted figures by you and your daughter! I remember Clarke Dunham on a McComas & Tuoy video said that a great paint job makes a huge difference. You and your daughter have done a great paint job on these figures!

Great pix Mark and Pat. Keep 'em coming.

Arnold- it's a little bit spooky how our little people seem to move around the place....

That's because they take long distance, high speed train rides.

Arnold- I like how you incorporated the waste pipe into the scene.

That pipe is actually in connection with the fuel oil tank in my basement. My trains run by the oil tank underneath the dock:

We can pretend that the oil tank gauge is a gasoline pump.

Sure, Petra. They are from: Baker's Railroad Shop, Roy Baker (1-845-887-0079). He imports them and hand-paints them. They are metal, every part of them.

Roy crafts a variety of carts/wagons, several of which are featured in these vignettes....IMG_0479

Arnold,

     The Great thing is I have more of them to paint thanks to Doc (Thom), who seems to be able to find them in bulk from time to time.  Got to find time to due some more painting of the little people!

Thanks for the nice comments

I felt like adding an Image to this, you could take it one of two ways.

One, the people are in watching the movie.

Two, the Movie Theater(Theatre) is starting to not be as popular due to other forms of entertainment available.

TCOCHRAN, In either scenario, it seems like there might still be one or two people milling around , perhaps, over on the left of picture #1, or passing by, in picture #2. Overall, it's kind of bright and clean to be a place totally neglected.

Arnold,

   Here are some more pre WWII little people that I just completed painting.  Thanks for starting this tread, it remained me I still had these older little people to paint.

Thanks to Thom (Doc) for supplying them for me a while back!

DSCN2483Rozy 205,

   A lot of this stuff comes in from Great Brit, others came from sand castings we did as young boys in the late 40's thru the 60's.  Man I wish I still had all those cool Army and Navy lead figures I made and painted up as a boy.  Unfortunately mom gave them away when I was drafted, along with some other pretty cool train accessories.
