    Is there anyway or a list of Train UID that link to the unit numbers?

    I.e. EMT C80246 is 222*** or 43***

    Cheers

    It would cost more to produce than it would ever earn in sales! Plus it would remove all the fun surely? Not that i know anything about spotting..............

    I thought train UIDs applied to services rather than physical trains?

    That's right, each schedule has to have a UID otherwise it won't get published. It has nothing to do with unit numbers.

    I think the OP must be asking for a list of the type of train booked
    to operate each service (hence the comment about it being published
    in book form) rather than the actual unit number, which of course
    changes every day!

    That said, even the type of unit often vs varies.
