What determines how cars are numbered?

Recommended Posts

Like how the R44s used to be three numbered but gained another digit after the GOH in the early '90s...

 

And where do they pull numbers from, generally?

The SIRTOA R-44's still use 3 digit car numbers. Even car number = A Car, Odd car number = B car.

The R44/46s where renumbered because the computer system the TA used at the time for CED stuff would not allow 3 digit car numbers to be used or so the story goes.
