Yes, there are a lot of TT-scale tanks available (German and Soviet). Not only Hauler, TAM also produce some military stuff, and some Ukrainian manufacturers too.

And also the armored railcar "Red Star" (we are at the railroad forum, aren't we?)

Use civilian people and/or railroad personnel. I am sure, civilian people look almost identical in every country.


Oh, for sure I'm planning to have civilians, too - I've got a box of 100 unpainted Preiser figures. But in photos of railway stations, there are /always/ a bunch of soldiers around, either waiting for trains or just looking very bored. If I had to make a guess, I'd say about 1 out of every 5 people at a railway station is military. And then they're often to be seen at construction sites too, for example... so they're pretty multipurpose! But yes, definitely I'll have civilians, too.

And the military vehicles are also something I'll be exploring in more detail as to what's available in TT... I've seen photos of flatcars carrying BM-21, T-55, various ZIS-150 trucks, and even a (I think) SU-152 parked at a railway station, the crew hanging their laundry out on it to dry...

Ok, I see.
As far as I remember my service in the Soviet Army, the greatest dream for soviet soldier was to take a sleep a little. :wink:

Use 15mm figures.

Or maybe put a military patrol on your station.
(The left soldier and the right soldier from the first photo looks good for this purpose, and add an officer...)
Just do not use the big pedestal; only the figures; maybe use small and thin transparent pedesdal.
