    The Intercity 125. Still in service, although in South Wales in a shorter formation, was first introduced in 1976.....forty three years ago.
    We still have these "up north" as our 2best Trains" .... as well as the play on words that are "The Pacer trains" which is basicaly a Leyland National Bus on Rails - though I am not insulted on behalf of the Bus part - more the Train side of it/element!!

    Ah the good old Pacer, These old rattlers still do the Southport to Manchester service, I love the sound they make when they set off from Southport train station.

    We occasionally get the Flying Scotsman on the Bury:Ramsbottom line .. pretty sure they gave it a new black paint job a short while ago
