About Palace Car Co.

The founder of Palace Car Co assembled two streamlined coaches for his layout in the 1980’s but could not locate seats to purchase. A machinist by trade, he clamped a strip of oak in his milling machine and “machined” two 10 inch long benches. After cutting them into 3/8” pieces, he filed them, sanded them, painted them and then glued them into the cars as seats.

After 15 hours of work for the seats in these two coaches, he thought to himself, "...there has got to be a better way." The seeds of the business had been sown. After a couple decades lacking detail parts for the interiors of passenger cars, we decided to do something about it. (For a view of one of these coaches, see Parlor Kit #9551 in the catalog.)

In 1999 the Palace Car Co brand of products was founded. Since most of the real passenger cars were coaches, and since the model coaches were so obviously empty, we started with coach seats. The first product, #5001 Streamliner Coach Seats, was on the market by the fall of 2000. In 2001 the first complete interior kit for coaches was introduced, and additional products have been added to our catalog each year since. We are currently working on more great stuff, stay tuned...

Our Motto:
Are you tired of your coaches having that dark, empty look?

Our Goal:
To provide interior detail parts for HO scale passenger cars
so the modeler can improve the looks of his trains.

Our target is the average modeler who has a fleet of plastic passenger kits and would like to improve them. Specifically, those kits that are being sold without a factory interior, although, many HO scale people are clipping down the tracks, in the comfort of Palace Car Co seats, inside brass cars as well.

We are modelers, too!
