Coach 49 was specifically ordered for use on the Governor-Generals White Train and was built by the Metropolitan Carriage & Wagon Co. in England. It was placed in service as Car No. 126 in June 1947. This coach is notable as it was the central conference coach of the train which was placed in the centre of the Victoria Falls Bridge in August 1975 in one of the early abortive attempts to bring about peace in Rhodesia. Seen at the Quteniqua Transport Museum, George, on 18th July 2018.
