From memory; the 'all filled in' code (i.e. smokebox + 3 on buffer beam) was reserved for the royal train, however I am struggling to find a source for that one for some reason....

I've seen it quite recently, too, although I can't recollect why, maybe connected with the recent passing of QEII? I am really not sure, but the memory seems very recent.
