Markings on Mk 3 Coaches

Question

I’m just finishing a rake of Mk 3 coaches in CIE Supertrain livery. I can’t find any photographs to guide me on the correct markings on the ends of these coaches.

Should it be from the top:

1. Dayglow square

2. Number

3. Flash warning.

 

Thanks in anticipation of the usual expert response.

So is there a definite answer to Kirley's question? Was there all three - dayglow, number and leccy flash, or just numbers and flashes ?:confused: Richie.

I always wondered why, on account of dayglo gangway ends, they see a need to put those awful day glo rectangles on the back of carriages. They don't have them on wagons..........?? And not one person has ever been killed because a carriage didn't have a day glo patch............

When the dayglow panels got so dirty, it was an indication that it was time to wash the carriages. No? A weathering vane? R
