Is it known what number series will be used for the new cars? 01900 and up perhaps?

I could see the T doing like they did with the HSP46s and jumping to 2000/2200 or something similar since both orders are for 100+ cars, unless they were going to number them by the married pair.

I have heard that the Orange Line cars, Main Line #14's, will be in the 01400 series but there will be interference with the Red Line 01500s at some point. As for the Red Line, South Shore #4's cars no clue, but 01900 would be in series.
