Track Access Agreements, between Network Rail and Train Operating Companies and approved by the ORR under sections 17-22 of the Railways Act 1993, don't specify the number of coaches in individual services. The ORR is unlikely to be able to help you. You may do better asking the DfT whether the Franchise Agreement specifies the number of coaches.
