You can never have too many people

When your N scale model railroad is Tokyo you need lots of N scale people.

Adding people and creating little scenes that tell a story have always been enjoyable to me.  Modeling passenger trains and stations in Japan means more opportunity to do this.

There is a wide variety of N Scale Japanese people sets available from Kato and Tomytec.  


I purposely created a walkway area along part of the front of the module connecting one of the station entrances to the street as a place to display some people.

The food vendors are from the Kato lunch vendors, set # 24-262.  The other figures are walking passengers from various sets.

I've tried two different adhesives to attach N scale people.  The Accent Glue from Woodland Scenics works great on a stationary layout.  It comes a brush attached to the lid.

On modules I've had the best results with Walthers Goo.  Use a toothpick or bamboo skewer to apply a small amount.

So far I have about 50 people on the modules, most of those on the station platform.  As I add more and create some little scenes, I will present them in future posts.
