Class 142

Ditto on the GWR Green.  :P

 

Very true. The pacers do wear some very nice liveries. I don't even model any of the locations where the 143s in Local Lines livery and the 143s in GWR Green operate but I will definitely have some on my layout just because the liveries are very eye catching and Realtrack do such a good job at printing them. It would be nice for another batch of these including the recently repainted GWR Green 143s. Personally I think that they would sell really well considering that this livery hasn't been produced before and that eight of the GWR 143s will be operating into 2020 now.

Reading between the lines on the Class 156 thread, is the “super train” Class 142 the next big project to push or you going to produce more 143/144’s or 156’s?

I suspect this previous post helps explain that the 142 goes next now that the 156's finally arrived

I'll still be in the market for Northern - even if the name will be gone by the time they are ready!

Well, I'm afraid I don't. But a question for Charlie and Arran, how is the 142 Project progressing?

By all accounts work on the 142 hasn't started yet as I believe that Charlie is snowed-under dealing with the Class 156.  See Charlie's post earlier in the week...

Ah, Thanks Al. I hadn't seen that post but it's good to see it's not been forgotten. Hopefully the delay won't be too long, but having 3 of the excellent FGW 143s in the fleet I'm highly sure that the delay will be worth it!

This could end up being very expensive. Fingers crossed I have a couple of years to save up!

Hi Charlie, 

 

Thank you for posting. This is brilliant news. 

 

Just a quick query. The three Northern Rail 142s that you intend to produce (60, 62 & 91), will they all be produced as per your image that I have quoted in this post, with Northern Rail logos and branding? 

 

Thank you very much in advance. 

 

Kind Regards, 

 

Danny.

Probably we will have:

1 X Northern

1 X Northern Serco Abellio

1 X Unbranded

No final decisions yet, so everyone have your say !!!!!!!!!!!

Did the 142s run in GMPTE orange with the newer doors?

I honestly don't know, but I doubt Charlie would knowingly allow an inaccurate body/livery combination to be produced.

Hi Charlie,

 

Great news to see the first 142’s announced. You know I want one Provincial one with the Network Northwest logos. I will hope for an orange GMPTE to go with that in the future. 

 

I will have a pair of Northern ones probably go with the two branded versions ideally have one on the long distance Carlisle- Lancaster working. 
 

Thanks

Mark

Network North West logo - good call.

This is great news Charlie and whilst I would certainly be up for at least one Provincial example it is disappointing (though understandable given current circumstances) that the original GMT and Brown/Cream ‘Skipper’ liveries aren’t being produced as originally planned. I might however be tempted by another Provincial example particularly if it has Network North West logos as suggested by Mark. Jim

Great to hear the project is advancing, although as I'm after a FNW Example I know I'll have a bit more of a wait. But I'm certainly looking forward to seeing the 142 bought up to 21st contrary standards at last!

Nice to see news of the 142s being developed. Hopefully they can be progressed with.

 

This brings us back to seat-gate as 142091 has the Northern Spirit 'posh' seats. Are they going to be done in the model. I can understand if not - but the 144s have given us a model with great detail.

 

As for provincial is there to be one done with yellow doors as per a one later in life - or again as they all the same with 4 leaf so things can be kept simple and made.

Wonderful news :yahoo_mini:

 

I'm in for one or two of the provincial units regardless of Hornby finding the original tooling and gatecrashing this.

 

Also would be in for a Orange GMPTE also if this happens in the future.

Charlie. Would you give any consideration to having the 142 with lit marker lights rather than printed on. It was my only gripe about the wonderful 156. I would have paid a bit more to cover the cost to give lit markers. Next to the Hornby 153, or Bachmann 150, the Realtrack 156 wipacs look odd, and for me is a real shame.
