I am struggling to get a driver and fireman figures for some of my newer locos.I have looked at the forum and the web.The seats are so small on the new OO models and the current albeit limited figures do not fit into the seats so I have looked for HO. With the nearest model shop 25 miles away its difficult to see if even HO would fit these smaller seats.
Has anyone come up with a solution other than cutting pieces out of the drivers "backside"

P D Marsh do some nice white metal figures. They include a left hand and a right hand driver plus a shovelling fireman. They have to be painted. I got mine on ebay very reasonably. The drivers are not seated, but I do not imagine that they sat all the time.

Hi

With diesels loco's you will have a bit of a problem and they may need to lose a leg or 2 and maybe a nibble from their ass. I use HO figures by Plessier.

Driver fitted in seat when he had his legs removed.





As for steam I have had no problems with getting Driver/Fireman to sit see photo, also from Plessier.







Hope that helps and gives you a couple of ideas.
