    The Pacers were in use in 1989 on Tees Valley line so why not 143 Pacer.jpg 142 pacer.jpg

    I would definitely buy it, if a pacer was made for this line. I mainly do passenger services so it would make it even more interesting.

    Agreed, and a Regional Railways livery for the 101 would be nice to see.

    I’d really like to see it, providing it is easier to drive than the 101.

    It'd have to be cranked up to simulate the experience in a 'nodding donkey'.
    It should be given there's no gears and it has normal brakes. That's partly why I want it, as although I don't find the 101 too hard to drive, it's not the most relaxing of drives.

    Yeh I have always felt the pacer is a big thing missing from tees valley. I'd also settle for some regional railways mk1s/mk2s and the 31!

    I'd love to see some Pacers in TSW2. I like those older DMUs :)

    The Pacers (particularly class 143) were probably more common on this route in 1989 than the 101, especially the 3 car ones which I think would have all but disappeared. The unpowered centre coaches were often removed so first generation DMU's could keep to Sprinter timings.

    It would be great to see a 143, there is a 313 on the roadmap for ECW so it is not impossible.

    +1 for Pacers from me, I've spent the last couple years in Manchester so am well acquainted with them. I can safely say they'll probably become my most used passenger train as I mostly do freight... but I'll make an exception for Pacers

    Class 141 at Huddersfield in 1984. Would be great on part of NTP route to Leeds.

    Is it a bus? Nearly
    Is it a train? Almost
    Is it a tram? No
    Ah, it must be a Pacer then.

    Everybody needs a virtual Pacer in their life. It’s what should have been released for TVL instead of the Class 20.

    Not so much instead of, but more likely as well as.

    I certainly wanted it ahead of class 20, it really was the main passenger traction for the route in 1989. They have a class 313 on the roadmap for ECW so maybe it isn't impossible.
