The first one not quite. You're using present progressive tense, so you're sitting right now. Then you say I will call you (future tense) when I sit even though you've just said you're already sitting. This sounds confusing. A suggestion: I will sit on the first carriage. I will call you when I sit. Second one is almost correct! I will get on the first carriage = perfectly fine I will call you when i get = not a complete sentence You will call them when you get what? Get (arrive) there? Get a coffee? Get groceries? This part needs to be clear.

You are sitting IN the first carriage (of a train). I will call you when I (find a seat ) and sit down. You will get on the first carriage, then you will be in the carriage. Will you call your friend when you get there (to your destination)?
