Depends on the sort you want, if you want caricatures there's plenty advertised in Garden Rail magazine, for more realistic figures Pico or Accucraft do some

There is even a company that will 3D scan you so you can drive your own loco. You may to buy 2nd hand as some have somewhat irregular supply. Max

I might have something suitable Paul. Have you got a photo of the loco? Can you measure how tall you would like him to be?
Mike.

You can't sell him Ron Dennis - he works exclusively for the Norfolk Squit Mine :devil::devil::devil:

I realise that Ian, but his twin brother is currently unemployed and not in receipt of any benefits. Attleborough is not too far away so he would be able to keep in touch with his sibling.

How do you plan on "Wearing" that driver you seek ?
Your answer is important, as I would apply for the job, but if you plan on trying to "Wear" me; no amount of compensation is worth it....(T think you meant to say "Where can I find one".....and those guys were "On about" some joke that seems to carry on, without end !!! I do hope you find some bloke to hire, as you probably can't afford my services !!!

You'll be pleased to hear the vacancy has been filled Fred. Further to the earlier exchange between Rhino and myself Ron Dennis's twin brother volunteered, collected his passport and visa and set off for Attleborough yesterday. It's less than 40 miles from here on the edge of nowhere so providing the stagecoach encounters no highwaymen and the horses don't go lame he should be nearly there. He'll need to get kitted out and put through the training course so I suspect it will be a few days before we see him in action.
