    It varies by line (especially the more complex ones like UNF), but, generally speaking, DS is Down Slow, UF is Up Fast and UM is Up Main.

    In order you put them:

    Down Slow
    Up Fast
    Fast Line
    Up Main
    UNF can depend on the area, for an EMT service around Nottingham it will mean Up Nottingham Fast
    D can also depend on the area, for an EMT service around Nottingham it will mean Line D
    UN can also depend on the area, for an EMT service around Nottingham it will mean Up Nottingham, or Up Newark.

    Depends on their location really as some will be geographically specific, UF will be Up Fast, DS will be Down Slow, FL is Fast Line, SL is Slow Line etc etc....

    In the 1960s and 70s, Yorkshire-bound trains from platform 13 at Manchester Victoria could see "CF" or "CS" in the theatre-type indicators.

    "CF" meant "Cheetham Fast" - not a reference to the train fares as some contemporary wags suggested - but the fast line through Cheetham Hill.

    Not a problem now, as the Cheetham loop was disbanded some time ago [and now hosts part of the Metrolink like to Rochdale].
