Does anyone know if the class 141 Pacers ever operated on the following routes below, im a Leeds lad and know the routes they reguarly used to work on - but ive always wondered did they ever stray further afield - i started trainspotting in 1996 so only saw them on my local line (Hallam / Ponte) for a couple of years before the were withdrawn, but have never actually been on one.

Did they ever work the following services
Sheffield - Retford - Worksop - Lincoln
Sheffield - Cleethorpes via Brigg
Sheffield - Scunthorpe
Sheffield - York via Pontefract
Doncaster - Hull via Goole
Hull - Scarborough via Bridlington
York - Selby - Hull

They certainly worked Sheffield to Lincoln via Retford because I had one or two for haulage at Saxilby while visiting a friend.

I'm fairly certain they worked York-Selby. They worked to Doncaster-Goole as well but I'm not sure if they made it as far as Hull.

Saw on on Sheffield - Scunthorpe once. Not sure about the Brigg route, they were common to Lincoln but when you pass them going the other way it is hard to tell for certain if they were going to Cleethorpes or Lincoln. I would be surprised if they hadn't to be honest.
