    The CRL contracts are indeed named “CR1xx” for CRL Phase 1.

    For Phase 2 it’s “CR2xx”.

    For Punggol branch it’s “Pxxx”.

    Hence, going by the naming convention of CRL contracts, trains for CRL is indeed “CR151”. The “CR” here refers to CRL. “Contract CR151” can be abbreviated to “CCR151” or “C-CR151”.

    As for the “CR151” for NSEWL train replacement, the “C” is for “Contract” while the contract number is “R151”. So “Contract R151” can be abbreviated to “CR151”.

    Hence, to avoid confusion and clashes, we just call the new NSEWL trains as “R151” or simply just “Bombardier/Alstom NSEWL trains”. Similarly, we just call the TEL trains “T251” or simply just “TEL Trains” and JRL trains as “J151″/”JRL Trains”.

    I understand that the contract number clash with the NSEWL replacement train contract, until the latter has to rename.

    Actually, there are still C numbers that can be used, right?

    C151, C651, C751A, C751B, C830, C951, CT251, C151A, C151C.

    C4 looks very stylish, and sounds very sturdy.
    More importantly, it is available.

    Could have just called the first generation trains C451, then subsequent trains C452, C453, C454, etc.

    Why go and clash the name?

    Also, where’s the screenshot or web address that CR151 is the contract number for the Cross Island Line trains?

    Hi, are you sure you got the contract number correct? CR151 is the contract number used for the NSEWL new generation trains.
