Ok I hope I am not asking too many questions, but I been searching and searching but not really finding any thing, I have two figures that are supposed to go into the cab of the loco on the rails (the green one), however one of them is sitting and the loco has NO seats in the cab...so as you can tell that creats a bit of a conflict...my rail road has not devloped (well perfected) the invis-o-seat yet...so really I want to find a chair or a proper seat that I can put the figure into then place the seat/chair properly in the cab,  so again I call on your heads and brains where/how and what can I do/use for chairs? I want to use seats that are proper for steam trains if possible...so I ask for help!

Suggest scratch building a 'jump seat' from plastic.
It will not be seen.

Any recommendations as to where I should/could go to aquire one? or just use my own scrap pile? would a beat up OO scale vehicle work just as well?
