Pacer Penetrates Plymouth
That's right, the photo does indeed show a Class 142 in the bay Platform at Plymouth station today. The unit in question was 142009. This was taken around 4ish. I couldn't tell you what this would have been used on if I'm honest. Of course it would be some service from Exeter to Plymouth, but why it was used I really don't know! Especially with the recent influx of extra 150s it does seem quite strange. Though no doubt this would have been an interesting trip up Rattery Bank and the various other inclines between Totnes and Plymouth, a real challenge for the 142!
