  6. Pacer trains: Politicians call for passenger compensation

    Politicians in northern England are demanding passengers still having to use the much criticised Pacer trains should be offered reduced fares.

    Pacer train

    Sheffield mayor Dan Jarvis and Leeds City Council leader Judith Blake, have told train operator Northern that using the ageing units is unacceptable.

    Pacers are 1980s-built railbuses meant as a short-term alternative for trains.

    Northern had planned to withdraw them all by the end of this year.

    The much-derided Pacers were originally constructed from the body of a bus frame and intended to have a maximum lifespan of 20 years.
