quiet coach

quiet coach
A rail coach on which unnecessary noise is discouraged.

On my way to PBO yesterday, having been ousted from the quiet coach by an announcement ,specifically, banning laptop computers, I overheard more than I really wanted to about the BBCs arrangements for co-ordinating documentaries including special items about the war, and later the producer-ladys diary for the week and forthcoming hair appointments.
