Electric Multiple Units (EMUs) are used in the operation of trains.
All trains used in the Urban Railway Lines (URL) are manufactured by Metro-Cammell England. At present, MTR owns 762 cars. Each of them has its own car ID, which is made of 1 letter and 3 numbers (e.g. A203, B436). The letter represents the car type. Each train is composed of 8 cars, in the typical formation: A - C - D - B - C - D - C - A
