Station and Street Figures

An essential for good scenes are the nondescript figures who hold their place.  They are not conspicuous, as their goal is to fill the streets and stations with passers-by and waiting passengers.  All too often, a line of figures is produced with a plethora of  character and action pieces, but few or none of the mundane poses.  Here are gathered a few of the nondescript miniature minions who help popular depots and sidewalks, so that the character pieces can stand out boldly.

Station, taxi stand and waiting figures.  Three to the left are Lemax, one to right is St. Nicholas  Good, basic poses for station and bus stop scenes.  Note man checking watch, and man looking for oncoming bus.
