290 cm restriction on AVE train?

On the AVE train in Spain, there is a restriction of 290cm in dimension. Does that mean that the sum of dimensions of each individual piece can't exceed 290cm or does that mean the sum of dimensions of all pieces combined can't exceed 290cm? I understand that maximum size of the largest piece can be no greater than 85 x 55 x 35.
