## About This Content
The Classic BR Class 142 ‘Pacer’ arrives for service in Train Simulator,
emanating authentic 1980s vibes!
By the time that the 1980s rolled around, many of British Rail’s regional
passenger trains were ageing and in dire need of replacement – however, the
Government were being tight on BR, and as a result they didn’t have enough
money to produce a new unit that could bring a step change in quality across
Instead, another plan was put into place; 2 new trains would be developed, the
‘Sprinter’ and the ‘Pacer’, one matching the quality and evolution that BR
were aiming to achieve, with the other being a lower cost type that would get
the job done but ultimately with the intention of just being temporary. The
Sprinters would be derived from the Mk3 body shell profile and be put to use
on urban, longer-distance services, while the Pacer got its design from a very
The concept was simple, use the body of the bus set atop what was essentially
stripped-down freight wagon, this ensured cost was kept to a minimum as very
little bespoke construction was required. There would be various Pacers based
off multiple buses, but the largest and most prolific would be those built
with assistance from British Leyland with their ‘Leyland National’ bus design
– and these units were dubbed the BR Class 142.
A fleet of 96 Class 142 Pacers were built between 1985 and 1987, and they were
quickly put to use on regional services in Devon and Cornwall, as well as the
North West. It was early on in their careers that they came under scrutiny for
being uncomfortable, and bouncy, thanks to their bogie-less wheel
configuration; the 142s in Cornwall were struggling with sharp curves on the
branch lines, and so they had to be moved elsewhere, in particular around
Liverpool and in the North East.
Love them or hate them, it cannot be ignored that the revolutionary Pacer
stands tall as a fine example of a stopgap that made an era-defining impact on
the British rail network.
