      Need 40 passenger coach seats

      I am updating some old Kalamazoo 1:24 scale shorty passenger cars with improved chassis, interiors and paint:

       

      I need 40 seats like this Hartland seat - one passenger wide, back to back:

       

       

       

       

      Any suggestions? Thanks!

      Sure ....but it depends on how detailed you want to get.  Bachmann Jackson Sharpe interiors can be cut up ?

      Measurements on both of the above mentioned seat options plus the "depot bench" from Just Plain Folks.

       

      Seats from the Bachmann J&S passenger cars:

       

       

      Seats from the Accucraft J&S passenger car.

       

       

      Depot bench from JPF. These could be easily cut for length and height as well.

       

       

      If you can find them the seats from the Aristo-craft Sierra coach they might work.

       

       

      Sorry no measurements on these.

       

      My last suggestion is that you make some simple benches out of bass wood. Several of the LSC members have done that. Perhaps one of them will post some pics of their work here.

       

      Looking forward to seeing the completion of this project as I like interiors and people.

      I talked to Phil to order the seats a while back and he didn't have them in stock. He wasn't optimistic about  having them in the warehouse so I began this thread to see what else would be available. Well, lo and behold, this box arrived today unannounced:

      Seats

      These are seats used on the last Hartland passenger cars. They need a fair amount of cleanup and painting will be a chore but they are here!

      And thanks to all for your help!
