Coach #7 had large windows that were let down, making an opening nearly 2' x 5' in size. In order to do this, it had no letterboard. At 33'-6" over endsills, it was a short car, but just right to fit in with the other early CC passenger cars. It apparently had the broken duckbill roof which was so characteristic of the early CC cars.


Coach #7 was built by the Colorado Central shops at Golden in July of 1878. It was the last narrow gauge car built at Golden.

Nothing is known of this car after the 1885 renumbering. It just sort of evaporated ...
