The Pacers were in use in 1989 on Tees Valley line so why not
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.
YESSSS WE NEED A PACER
would cab headsway be able to cope tho??
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 don't think there were any coaches on this route
I'd love to see some Pacers in TSW2. I like those older DMUs
No probably not, would be fun though! I miss loco hauled passengers in tsw 2
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.
The line was about to be replaced by pa.. OGM PACER LOVE CLASS 141, 142 NNW DTG ADD PLS
I hope someday we will have pacers in the game
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’d be happy with a 142 Pacer
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.
+1 for pacers for use on Tees Valley and/or Northern Transpennine
This one must happen DTG.
