    Train numbers are allotted by the railway board on the basis of Zones and on the basis of importance. Satabdi and Rajdhani have different code numbers then other express and passenger trains. Generally for up/Down trains there is a difference of 1 number. You can see 2001Up/2002Dn. In Rajdhani the first number is 9. Most long distance trains from Western Railway starts with 5 and like wise for other Regions also.
