    I noticed in the past 2-3 weeks there are no pacers on this route and it is replaced with 150, 156 and 158s. I wonder where the pacers are displaced and originally what lines do those 150 and 158 works on.

    Times I noticed: 11/06/18 19:22 class 150 (to Leeds?/ PIDS display Leeds but I think it is going to Sheffield)

    06/06/18 class 158 20:16 Sheffield bound.

    The Sheffield to Lincoln trains now start at Leeds and come via Barnsley. They also interwork with the Leeds to Nottingham now so run Leeds - Lincoln - Leeds - Nottingham - Leeds and start again. So because pacers can’t go south of Chesterfield in service they have to be worked by 15Xs or if a pacer does go to Lincoln it has to be swapped at some point before it goes to Notts

    There’s still the odd one later in the evening that gets a pacer on it. I assume when it’s swapped out. These as you say are generally 15X and I for one am absolutely over the moon about it.
