Train reporting numbers were used to identify trains in the internal working timetable. These codes contained one letter & 2 numbers or 3 numbers to uniquely identify a particular train, or to denote its route (particularly on busier lines). The reporting numbers were displayed on the front of locos in a steel bracket along with the lamp headcodes. On Western Region it was used to identify usual as well as special trains (e.g. summer Saturday excursions), to allow signallers to identify and route them correctly.
