Coach numbering: the Michael Harris book on Great Western Coaches from 1890 gives a date order listing of lot numbers, diagrams and coach numbers. An easier way of identifying the diagram number from the running number can be found in this Word doc (or equivalent pdf), compiled by Glyn Jones. Mike Flemming has added more details, particularly on the earlier coaches, in an Excel spreadsheet.
