Trainset numbers

The car numbers of the trains range from x501 to x570, where x depends on the carriage type.

  • The first digit depends upon whether the car is the first, second or third car from the end of the train it is nearer to, where the first car has a 3, the second has a 1 and the third has a 2.
  • The other 3 digits is the train identification number. A full length train of 6 cars have 2 different identification number, one for the first 3 cars, and the same number plus 1, for the other three. The smaller number is always at the front.
    • For example, train 569/570 would consist of 6 cars with serial number 3569, 1569, 2569, 2570, 1570 and 3570 respectively.
  • Depending on the direction of travel, the sequence may be reversed.
