I have spent sev­eral months trawl­ing the in­ter­net try­ing to find ‘N’ gauge fig­ures of fire fight­ers and po­lice of­fi­cers, in­clud­ing driv­ing of­fi­cers (pre-white cap but not seated) circa 1950/60s. I have tried all the usual sources, such as P&D Marsh, Lan­g­ley Mod­els and so on. The only po­lice of­fi­cers with the right uni­form I man­aged to find were whitemetal foot pa­trol fig­ures from Fleet­line on ebay. Surely, I can’t be the only ‘N’ gauge mod­eller in Bri­tain who is try­ing to pop­u­late their lay­out with fig­ures from this era? I’m also try­ing to ob­tain an AEC Re­gent III Mer­ry­weather fire en­gine of the pe­riod. I’m tear­ing my hair out try­ing to find such mod­els in ‘N’ – can any mod­ellers point me in the right di­rec­tion?
