With many thanks to Ben Morroll, I can bring you this photo of close friend of ours. Under the new purple guise this is Ex-FGW 142068, my personal favorite of the Devonian Pacers while she operated from Exeter. She was one of the quartet used on the final day of Pacer operation before heading North where she is pictured, operating a service to Wigan. The Northern livery certainly suits these well with 068 looking very smart. I would presume the interior is untouched seeing as the condition was so good after the refurb FGW gave them a few years ago. A majority of Northern's Pacer's do retain their previous owner's interiors, so it makes it relatively easy to identify their previous lives.
