The Talyllyn Railway’s coach No. 3 was constructed by Brown, Marshall & Company Ltd. This was the first of the passenger vehicles to be built for the ‘old company' being delivered ln January 1866. Later that year two similar vehicles were received, from the same builder, both were slightly longer (by 6 inches) and also higher. These were to become coaches Nos. 1 and 2, although the vehicles did not always carry numbers in the early part of the 2Oth Century, since preservation in 1951 these numbers are current usage.
No. 3 has been variously an all 3rd class - two 3rd/2nd and two 3rd/1st with the full height partition separating the classes!
