Introduction
Travellers is an N scale figure set from NOCH. Nine figures and two bags are included in this set, item 36220.

The Figures
NOCH packs these nine figures in a form-fitted cradle held in a clear hard plastic case.

Each figure is well molded as a single piece. The poses are natural. All of the poses balance well. I used a touch of glue to keep them upright; I suggest a tacky glue.

I posed the figures with an N passenger car and an N pickup truck. These figures are of authentic heights - NOCH avoids "cookie cutter" height.

Detail
Travellers includes nine figures. Three sets of two are the same model and three are unique.

Except for the ladies with the high skirts, these figures look like they will be comfortable in any era c.1930s through today.

Molding features fine facial detail, clothing detail, and a pair of handbags, each with open handles.

Painting
Each figure is factory painted. They look good from the "three-foot rule." Modelers who want to enhance these models with shadowing or different colors should have no problem doing so.

Conclusion
Travelers by NOCH is a good set of N scale figures for a railway station, bus stop, airport, or a busy street. They feature good molding with detail, and nice painting.

These figures balance well although, not surprisingly, I could not make any stand without glue.

I think that this set of nine figures look good and recommend them.

Please remember to mention to NOCH and retailers that you saw this set here - on RailRoad Modeler.
SUMMARY
Highs: Good molding with detail, and nice painting.
Lows: Six figures are of three poses.
Verdict: A good looking set of N travelers for a railway station, bus stop, airport, or a busy street.

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...
