Trainset numbers[edit]

The car numbers of the trains range from x601 to x690, where x depends on the carriage type.

  • The first digit identifies the position of the car from the closest end of the train; where ‘3’ represents first car, ‘1’ represents second car and ‘2’ represents third car.
    • (Example) Passenger Vehicle 689/690 would consist of 6 cars with serial number 3689, 1689, 2689, 2690, 1690 and 3690 respectively.
  • Depending on the direction of travel, the sequence may be reversed.
