That pacer has a Welsh destination did it serve in Wales previously or do all have that blind
All the 143s worked for Wales and West and Valley Lines until the creation of Wessex Trains and Wales and Borders in 2001 which split Wales and West in to the two new ones and the Valley Lines being incorporated into Wales and Borders..

It's all the western region!
The Destination Blind List fitted to 143621 Yellow Text on Black background is as follows,

Abbotswood, Abergavenny, Avonmouth, Barnstaple, Bath Spa, Bridgend, Bristol Parkway, Bristol T M, Cardiff Central, Carmarthen, Castle Cary, Cheltenham Spa, Crewe, Cwmbran, Devonport, Exeter Central, Exeter St Davids, Exmouth, Falmouth, Filton, Frome, Gloucester, Gunnislake, Hereford, Liskeard, Looe, Maesteg, Manchester Piccadilly, Milford Haven, Newport, Newquay, Newton Abbeywood, Newton Abbot, Paignton, Par, Pembroke Dock, Penzance, Plymouth, Portsmouth Harbour, Port Talbot, Romsey, Salisbury, Severn Beach, Shrewsbury, Southampton, St Erth, St Ives, Swansea, Swindon, Taunton, Tenby, Totnes, Truro, Warminster, Westbury, Weston S Mare, Weymouth, Worcester.

*Newton Abbeywood is printed on the blind and is an Error. Apparently mixed up with Newton Abbot and Filton Abbeywood. This list of Destinations is the same list of Destinations printed on the black and white blinds fitted to the GWR class 143s.

This list of Destinations was made up by Wales and West in the late 90s and has been used ever since on its class 143 150 and 153s, the Yellow text on black background blinds started to be used instead of black and white in around 2002 when 153329 and 153369 transferred from Central Trains to Wessex Trains, these were the first 2 units to carry the Yellow and Black versions.

I have uploaded a picture of the same blind i was given after 150207 went through PRM mods and blinds skipped and replaced by digi screens.

Hope this helps.

It’s now showing Milford Haven as I’ve just changed it.

Can we please stick to Class 143 withdrawals in this thread :)

Anyone is welcome to create a new thread (if there isn't one already) to create anything else.

Thanks.
