Gandy dancers, guys swinging a pick, etc.
Chinese, Irish (OK, the Irish can stay), Cole Porter singers…

Jim has the Sarissa set, and needs some workers while Evil People try to slow down the schedule.

Dixon has a large selection of individual civilians. Foundry sells townsfolk by the pack. Old Glory/ Blue Moon might be worth taking a look at.

Take a look at Knuckleduster:

Maybe some are made in O scale model train sets. Just a thought.

O is 35-40mm. S scale would be more accurate as that is close to 25mm at 1/64.

On a personal note, I wouldn't go with Knuckleduster unless you already have large figures. I mix figures pretty freely but, to my eye, I don't think I could even put them on the same table with my smaller 25s. That said, they are nice figures.

Yes S Gauge railroad figures would be closer.

Sadly I do not know of any old west rail workers in S gauge.
Some more 1930s types and a few generics (shirts off) from Arttista:

OFM, check out the Knuckleduster line under "Railroad figures"
These are the original line and are smaller than the current Gunfighters Ball. They work with Foundry, OG, and I like the sculpts.

That's good to know.
