looking for info on a chair rail made of a shelf

The paint is still drying in my dining room and I am already forging ahead to my living room...LOL...I am thinking about doing a chair rail in there that is higher up on the wall at about 5' high that is made of a shelf. Below is a picture that I found on the internet of what I am looking to do but having trouble finding moulding like this. Does anyone know what this is called when a shelf is used for a chair rail?

I've heard that it's called a 'Plate Rail' ... at least, that's what I called it when I did one years ago.

That is several types of molding used to make that shelf. If you print off the photo and take it to a lumber yard or big box store, they can show you the different types that went into it.
