Northern admits it will not begin retiring Pacer trains this year
Operator still aims to phase out the much-derided ‘buses on rails’ by the end of 2019
The rail operator Northern has admitted it has not yet begun retiring its much-derided Pacer trains – or “buses on rails” – having previously pledged to start before the end of the year.
Northern said delays to infrastructure improvements meant none of the 100-strong fleet had yet been sent to the railway graveyard.
