YouChoos Resouces
Adding Locomotive Crew

The addition of loco crew to any steam or diesel model provides character and reaslism. Use a variety of figures in different poses if you want to add crew to many locos. Consider painting them different colours, or even breaking their arms and readjusting them in different places (realistic poses of course!).

For OO models, weathering the crew up with some dirty oils improves even the cheapest figures out-of-the-box.

To fit standing figures, file the bottom of their feet flat and dab some super-glue to their soles, then place carefully into position using tweezers or small pliers. For sitting figures, particularly in diesels, you may need to chop their legs off to get them in the driver's seat!


Please note that these guides are provided as useful resources for you, as-is. YouChoos cannot be held responsible for errors in the information, or for any damage caused to your models or equipment if you choose to follow any of the steps detailed here.
