Realistic People

Hello again, haven't logged on for a while and as usual I'm after advice. I'm at the point now with my layout that I want to put some people on it. I've been looking at the modelscene people in my local shop and to be honest I don't like them. The Bachmann and Hornby people are better but the range isn't wide enough and I think they are expensive.
The Dapol, (ex Airfix?) people look good, but my painting skills are not great and I know I'll make a hash of trying to paint them.
Can anyone suggest a source of good quality painted people for OO guage. I'm modelling a preserved steam line so anything goes with regard to passengers but railway staff should not be too modern image.
Thanks for any help offered.

I find the Preiser range excellent and ho size for OO the best. As stated OO looks too big! As for looking to European its up to you how you paint them to suit the period you model.

This is one coach load....... only 40 more to go. These are all from Railway Personnel & Passengers (120) by Preiser PRE 16325.

Preiser figures

Hope that helps.
