Over the course of several days I recently painted a large number of 1/100th scale figures for my subway stations. Since the re plumbing project of my house earlier this year my subway system had not yet been put back into service. Before I dug out the subway cars I ordered a set of 100 1/100 scale figures on ebay. After their arrival I set about to repaint some and touch up others to add to the stations. After all, what's a subway system without riders?...
A bare Fulton Street station and the undecorated lower level portion of the layout. North Side Yard sits above this area.
Lots of figures and lots of paint. I glued the figures to the stick and the plastic cases so I could work on a whole bunch at one time.
Fulton Street with would be subway riders awaiting their train. How prototypical is that!

The IRT #4, the Lexington Ave Express, originated at Woodlawn Road in the Bronx. Below it bypasses Fulton Street on it's way south through the city to Utica Ave in Brooklyn.
