    Yes - Seem to recall seeing it on quite a few 142s in the north east during February. I don't remember seeing it on any other classes, though.

    I presume The Samaritans chose to put their advertisement on the side of a Class 142 because they know what everybody standing on the platform must feel like when they see their train arrive and it turns out to be a pacer?

    There's lots of adverts on trains (inside) and at stations on SWT's network.

    There are Samaritans adverts on most stations around the country, particularly where ther have been suicides. I haven't seen any on trains though,

    I've not seen a livery application anyway but I know on AGA services there are often A4 posters in the advert snap panels in the saloons.
