The Carriage Café is a former express coach that has been converted into a café.
The coach was extremely old and had a broken door. It was then put into a station siding and was likely to be sold for scrap. Meanwhile, there was a fire at a seaside café which gives Thomas an idea. The coach is sent to the works for a refit and is turned into a café. It is positioned on a siding near to the seaside. It is currently unknown if the coach is still in use or whether this was just a temporary arrangement whilst the regular café was being rebuilt.
It is not to be confused with the narrow gauge Refreshment Coach.
