Do you have an engine crew for your motive power?

Had several engines and railbuses out for my On2 and Sn2 projects a few days back. So while they were out being measured for length, decided to place a crew in them and on them. Earlier this year, Graham and I attended Howard Zane’s train show in Timonium Maryland. While there, we¬† had the opportunity to pick up several suitable O and S scale Arttista figures for my Forney crews. I have been having trouble with the “larger” gentleman, they need to go on a diet to fit into the cabs of the Forneys, but they may work well in the railbuses.

How big is Sn2 compared to On2

Recently had two models of the Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes Railbus #4 out to take a picture of crew members and their “machine”. Was discussing the various crew members for various motive power with several friends. The Wiscasset and Quebec has the On2 version, and the Maryland Central has the Sn2 version. What better opportunity to have a scale comparison of a similar model. To give you an idea of the size of On2, behind the W&Q #4 is an On3 D&RGW 3000 series boxcar. and the rear of a K-28 tender.
