Default 00 (1/76) People - Climbing Stairs/steps

I've looked in the usual places, but have not come across 00 gauge people climbing stairs/steps - for example going over a footbridge. Any ideas or have you found some?

I have always though it best to avoid people in moving poise. Because they just dont look right. People standing around waiting or in groups talking, look much better. A person frozen in time climbing stairs looks UN-realistic.
Now please don't shoot me down that is only what I think. But I have noticed on other layouts people standing in still poses look better than somebody running along but not moving.

I totally agree John. Any people on my layout are just standing or sitting none are in a walking pose.

That also goes for vehicles. Mine are either parked or waiting at lights or a junction.

Thanks for the link Brian - and John, I agree with people in a moving stance, but I was looking for a person I could put on the stairs of the footbridge, rather than being halfway up (or down) but standing on the same step. It's not the end of the world - I could cut a leg off and stick it back on at a different angle!

If he is standing on the step both his feet would be on the same step. No need to cut anything is there. What about waving to somebody down the station. Now that would look OK.

Mountain Goat is an unknown quantity at this point

If one is clever one can get his hand to wave! Would be an interesting attraction to the layout!
