The second figure from the left denotes the sub-group into which the equipment is classified within the
main group. Examples: armored fighting vehicles, utility vehicles, special vehicles, tankers, tanks,
tractors, etc. A detailed list of these sub-groups is given in the sketchbook.
The last two figures are simply a serial number for the equipment within each sub-group. The SNCF has
been allocated the numbers 00 to 29 and the numbers 30 to 99 have been assigned to the DB, which is
responsible for allocating a number to any sheets forwarded by the other Railway Administrations.
Additional Numbering of Sheets. If several methods of loading are possible for the same equipment, a sheet is
prepared for each one. In this case, the basic four-figure sheet number is supplemented by a new two-figure number to
the right of, and separated by, a full stop from the previous one.
The first figure on the left indicates the number of loading methods possible:
"0" - Only one method of loading possible.
"1" - First of two or more methods of loading.
"2" - Second method of loading.
The second figure indicates the number of vehicles which can be loaded onto a single wagon:
"0" - Only one vehicle can be loaded.
"1" - One vehicle can be loaded onto a wagon but other equipment can also be loaded.
"2" - Two vehicles per wagon.
General Layout of Sheets
Each sheet comprises (see example at Annex D):
The sheet number.
The designation of the vehicle to be transported.
The weight of the load.
An end-on diagram, 1/25th scale, of the vehicle, indicating, where appropriate, the critical points
outside the PPI gauge.
