    • But yes I think Class 142 Pacers are due to be scrapped very soon because of new trains are replacing them. Same with the Class 143 and Class 144 Pacers. Which is why a farewell tour for the Class 142, Class 143 and Class 144 Pacers is to happen before they are finally retire and sent for scrap.

  1. 1. No Pacer has been withdrawn under the DfT plan, so one will be there.
    2. Tickets on sale from Feb 6 – see February issue of Railway Magazine for full details
    3. There will be a limited number of tickets for postal applications
    4. There is no pay at the gate admission, advance ticket only.

  2. It certainly looks like it will be a good event,
    these days open days very few and far between
    looking forward to being there.
