Some background

Melbourne’s suburban train carriages are numbered from 1M all the way up to 966M, with a lot of gaps in between.

As for the ‘devil horns’ on the second train, they are actually antennas for the GSM-R digital train radio system which is slowly being deployed across the metropolitan area.
