Snap.

 

I'd maybe take 2 provs if you produced two different numbered units .

A GMPTE Orange/Brown 142001-142014 example . A provincial  142028 -142050 (10 roof rib 1st batch) and a provincial 142051- 142096 (3 roof rib 2nd batch) for me.

Two usefu sources of areas where 142 operated are in two books on Pacers -the Pacer by Mackin -largely captioned photos and The Pacer Family by Kerr which has more detail and many photos from around the country and various liveries. There is also a Modern Locomotives  Illustrated on the subject.

Examples of 142s in Cornwall, North East, Darlington-Saltburn,  Carlisle-Lancaster, Blackpool, Leeds, York, Sheffield, Liverpool, Wales.

Hi Folks,

 

Not quite a 142 but I thought you all might be interested to see what I'm up to with the added bonus that I'm chopping up a Hornby one to build it !

 

The Hornby parts are spliced together with Peco Model Scene Leyland National bus kits.

2 - GMPTE early

 

3 - GMPTE late

 

4 - Reggie Rail

 

5 - Merseyrail ( I hate the real ones seats, but still have to have one!)

Hi Charlie, hope you are well? 

 

The first Northern pacer has been retired today (142005). Well their was one retired last week due to an engine failure but that wasn't a planned withdrawal (142025). So that makes it the first two officially retired by Northern with more and more to go over the coming weeks and months. 

 

I was just wondering how close we are to having some Northern branded and debranded 142s? 

 

Thank you very much in advance.

Hi Charlie, any idea when the “pre-order” book for the Class 142’s will be opened?

Sadly no, as Rapido has made little progress on what we had 12 Months ago sadly.   We might have to do some more 144's.

Phil.

This is quite sad on Rapido's behalf because I can't help but feel that you would produce an excellent 142. Have you had an explanation from Rapido regarding the delay and lack of progress? If so is their anything that you can divulge? Is the 142 definitely still going ahead?

 

Now some more 144s would be excellent because I missed out on the first batch, because I didn't know about you. Some Northern branded and Northern debranded 144s would be excellent. 

 

Thank you very much in advance.

If you do another 144 in Abellio Northern, I’ll definitely have one, maybe two lol.

If you could at least get the 142/144 original bus seat interiors sorted, an as new Metro train livery 144 would be most welcome. Shame about the 142 delay but gives me time to save up some serious money for 3 of them. (GMPTE, Provincial 1st batch and Provincial 2nd batch.)

Best crack on with these then. No doubt Rapido will then get their fingers out and get yours sorted just as I get em finished...20190813_130438.jpg.d9c5e24ae06e9dcd5455ed1e3daf7114.jpg

I have a topic (below) where I can answer any questions rather than hijacking Charlie's topic :)

Hi Charlie, 

 

Hope you are well? 

 

Is their any update on the Class 142? Just asking because I would be really keen to buy a couple of purple Northern Class 142s. It would also be good to know how far along the project is for these so that I can think about allocating money for them if they are due for release in say 2020? Also would you consider doing another production run of Class 143s and Class 144s? I missed out on the first batch of these a few years ago and I would be really keen to buy the FGW Local Lines & GWR Green liveries on the 143s and Northern Rail purple livery on the Class 144s. 

 

Thank you very much in advance. 

 

Kind Regards, 

 

Danny.

Delayed due to the Provincial 156s being late.     Sorry.

 

Each project is self financing so proceeds from 156s pay for the 142.

Hi Charlie, 

 

Thank you for the reply. I really appreciate it. Have to say I am really looking forward to buying some Northern Rail 142s. I feel that you will do an excellent job at producing them as you have done with your other models. As and when you have further updates on these can you post on this thread please? I just don't often check websites now for announcements, I tend to just look on here where everything that's been announced can be found in the same place. 

 

Thanks in advance. 

 

Kind Regards, 

 

Danny.
