Coach No.7 arrived at the Teifi Valley Railway in 1998, from the Welsh Highland Railway.
It was constructed by Welsh Highland Railway volunteers in 1973 at the depot of Alan Keefe in Cote, Oxfordshire. It hence became known as the 'Cote Coach'. Following construction, it resided at the Leighton Buzzard Railway for a time, before moving to the Welsh Highland Railway to form part of the trains on the newly reopened line.
Its design inspired TVR Coach No.1, in arrangement and layout.
The mismatch in chronological numbering can be attributed to construction of Coach No.6 having already begun in 1998.
This handsome vehicle is most certainly part of preserved Welsh narrow gauge railway history.
