    It means it's timed for a diesel with a 210 ton trailing load.

    It is what is known as a timing load. Back in the day D210 would be diesel loco plus 6 coaches, E350 electric loco plus 10 coaches, etc. There are hundreds of these timing loads for a planner to chose from, many are redundant as traction has changed, but presumably this represented the closest timings that match an EMU being hauled.

    60-TR40 is the most populated freight timing load, 715 tonnes trailing. That can pop up on pretty much anything.
