According to my lists coach CIWL 4102 is a WP1 (Wagon Pullmann) with kitchen (9 windows) and was built by Birmingham in 1927 "l'Etoile du Nord" from the series 4091-4110. 10 of the series were eventually converted to WR with 36 and 38 seats and six were transfered to Portugal. Interesting is that the coach had partial Greek lettering still under CIWL so we have now 2. This would probably mean that it was regularly seen in Greece and maybe it is one of the 10 converted WP1 to WR.

Thanks Christo
Andreas
