People climbing stairs?

Are there people climbing stairs available in N?  I think standard walking figures can be used for descending.  But ascending is an issue. I found them in HO but not in N.

I was looking for the same thing recently- found these.  It is hard to tell from the photo how many are actually going up versus going down (although the description is
persons going up stairs).  Haven't ordered yet, as it will be a while before I get to the project.

WS has someone(painter) climbing a ladder that might be applicable for stair climbing

Also

I wonder if there is an engineer available (climbing a ladder into a cab) that may be used

I know WS has an engineer sitting (to be used in cab)

I'm fairly certain that Preiser (and possibly other figure manufacturers like Noch, or Tomix) have people on stairs (climbing and descending).  Maybe check DKS' website? He has a very extensive catalog of N scale figures.

I don't remember for sure, but my best guess is this guy was from a Model Power pack.

I checked DKS' site and Faller has 2 sets of people on stairs. One is specifically going up.

All you have to do now is to find a place which carries them.  Maybe DM-Toys?

One of the Faller sets is available on eBay for less than the Walthers option. The other set may be available there as well.
