In 1980, the LEGO Train line was refreshed and re-launched into what has become known as the grey era. This little passenger car was among the many supplemental sets that were part of that first wave.

A-Model

A neat little passenger car with a distinctive and striking colour scheme. The use of tiles along the top of the windows and doors means that the roof is only held on by a single row of studs at either end, and so is easily removable for play.

The set might have been intended as a supplement the passenger train 7710, and in fact, the design of the wagons from both sets are completely identical, except for the colour scheme and the plates on the roof of the wagon. But this passengar car also looks great when being pulled by either 7810 or 7750.

Because of the colour scheme, this set is sometimes said to be a supplement to set 7715 as well. But 7715 was released in 1985, at which time 7818 had already been dropped from the product range. More likely, 7715 was designed to succeed both 7710 and 7818.

B-Model

The alternative build uses around half the bricks to make an open sided carriage, maybe for a tram or an amusement park train. Again, similar to 7710.
