Athern Overland coaches, seats?

Does anyone make seats for the Athern Overland coaches?
Perhaps that would be something the 3-D print guys might do if they are not commercially available.
MTL only makes a four pack set and I don't thing they would be appropriate.

Hi Rick,

Coincidently I picked up my first set of Overland coaches yesterday at the NMRA (BR) convention.  When I get home I will have a look in-side, I am sure we can sort that out.

Great James.
Incidentally, if you replace the Athern wheels with MicroTrain wheels (only), they will roll much better and a small steam loco will be able to pull them no problem ;)

Do you have a link showing these seats?  Can't seem to be able to find them...

Hi Jerry.
Here is the Micro-Trains stock number.
I found it through a Canadian dealer       http://silvercreekcollectables.com/

Look under Micro-Trains N scale/ passenger


499 35 901 --- N Scale Accessory Kit

This thread has a post that shows old time (pre-1900) seating for some models...

Thanks Jerry.
I'll check that out. Seats look to be right on for that type of coach.
