Class 142 BRITISH RAIL  DMU  DMS-DMSL

Class 142 PACER Diesel Multiple-Units

 

The Class 142 DMU units were built in 1985-1987 by BREL Derby/British Leyland works. Class 142 trains have a maximum speed of 75 mph. Built as stop-gap measure to replace steam hauled trains, Class 142 PACER DMUs have served UK railways for many years with their characteristic rattling bumpy ride! Class 142 Pacer units are probably more loved and appreciated by railway enthusiasts far more than the general public!
