142089 Piccadilly -Sheffield
Yes, a lot do require a good shove.
142017 parked in middle road at Sheffield 1845.
142057 on the Wigan Wallgate - Man Vic run yesterday afternoon.
Paired with a 150.
Probably my last Pacer trip.
142032 Seen at Dinsdale with its bus seats and no heat with the delayed 0704 to Carlisle. Happily few of the refrigerated souls on board would be going past Newcastle.
142087 attached to the back of a 156 which was forming the very late 0634 Darlington-Whitby, 39 min late away from Middlesbrough
Pacers before daybreak 12/12/19
Sheffield Midland :
142078/031 0616 Sheffield- Leeds

142014 on 2N12 - 08.40 Newcastle to Middlesbrough.
Would anyone know the status of 142058 please
Well 142014 is now working the 10.20 Middlesbrough to Whitby. 2D87...and it's very cold on here. Thankfully I am only going as far as Great Ayton.
Just overtaken three empty 142s (led by 009) north of Durham whilst on the 0930 Edinburgh - Kings Cross. From what I could see, all three were bus-seated examples.
Edit: 142070 spotted on a Saltburn service when we stopped at Darlington.
142095 was on this mornings 06.48 Lancaster to Leeds.
Number 13/4/32/63/70/87 and 89 all around Teesside today.
142041+150139, 142062+150148 & 142040 +1420?? All at Manchester Piccadilly
142065, (142001 with 153328), 142012 and 144003 working the Knottingiey turns.
142031 on this mornings 06.48 Lancaster to Leeds.
Yesterday, Thursday 12 Dec. A Pacer heading westbound through Haltwhistle west side by the A69 - working the Saltburn dep 0618 to Carlisle arr 0929.
142046 on 2S66 12:35 Preston to Blackpool South.
Seen today at Horbury Junction was 142 086 working the 11:02 Sheffield to Leeds. Shortly before it passed 195 013 was observed on what I think was the 11:08 Leeds to Nottingham service - the first time I have seen one at this location other than on crew training.
Now on the 2N17 1315 Sheffield to Leeds, probably my last Pacer ride.
142041 (leading) with 150139 should be on the last ever Northern service between Manchester and Huddersfield and return shortly, 1759 from Piccadilly. Works back from Huddersfield to Piccadilly with a half hour layover at Marsden, perfect for a quick pint on the way back
Already going very badly, the Bishop/Darlington - Saltburn diagrams are absolutely decimated already.
142041/150139 was a unit swap in the end and did the Rose Hill after arrival from the 1601 Huddersfield. Oh well.
This is allegedly due to "shortage of conductors", which could of course be traction knowledge related. For the first time in 4 years I was bustituted out of Middlesbrough. Actually comfy and warm and a quiet if slightly longer journey, albeit in a coach with a driver who didn't know where the stations were and unilaterally decided to omit Allens West. Terrific 3-point turn in the car park at Eaglescliffe though.
Hopefully I will never see a Pacer again. For the record, 142013 on the 0712 ex Darlington was a disgrace. Filthy bus seat interior, no heat at all and wheel flats you could hear from half a mile. Good riddance!
Who knows what Monday will bring? I'lI no doubt be getting a slap in the face from Northern whatever shows up, and a new and less usefull timetable too.
142003 and 056 on the Stalybridge shuttle today, with 056 breaking off to do the Stalybridge-Stockport parly train.
142032 will now be approaching Hartlepool heading to Hexham (I passed it at Stockton).
142 092 currently at Mirfield on 09:20 Leeds to Southport.
142035 with a 150 on 1020 Man Picc to New Mills.
142004 and 142090 ready to work the 1039 Man Picc to Rose Hill.
142046 & 142028 on 2S64 10:57 Preston to Blackpool South.
142 051 and 142 036 currently sat on Newton Heath depot.
142062 with 150148 on the 1119 Man Picc to New Mills.
