I was wondering how people know headcodes like 1R54
This dosnt help me either http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Train_reporting_number#Headcodes
Yeah, that's a big problem for me - everybody else is copying exactly what I'm doing and not innovating and doing new things... but I have some tricks up my sleeve
As a fellow web designer, I sympathise, however in this case the genie is out of the bottle and you'll never be able to stop people implementing open data usage using bog-standard templates.
Also (going back to GNER days) whenever east coast puts a temporary weekend timetable online it usually has headcodes on it
There can be only one headcode at any one time in any particular region. Normally you find that a headcode is repeated twice in a day, once for a morning and once for an afternoon/evening service. (Note there will be other trains in other regions with the same headcode).

Like 0B00? :P
Plenty of occasions where identical headcodes have turned up at the same time in the same place, always good for the wrong routing and delay minutes that one.
Have seen two 6M64s at the same time in the past, heading towards each other hock: We also used to have two 6M69s in the same area (but not at the same time) but only one of those runs now.Plenty of occasions where identical headcodes have turned up at the same time in the same place, always good for the wrong routing and delay minutes that one.
0S00 is a shunt move, which I think is common to most areas - unless you work somewhere that a lot of such moves take place then you get variations on a theme depending on what move is required
On TOPS lists the train reporting code is actually 10 digits long. I know that digits 3,4,5,6 are the headcodes we usually see. I believe the last 2 are used to identify the day the train originally started in service as lists I have seen today have most of these ending in 05.
