Welcome to the Pacer Preservation Society's Homepage
The Pacer Preservation Society aims to preserve a representative from each of the three 'Pacer' Class railbuses operating on the national network today; Classes 142, 143 & 144.
The Pacer railbuses represent a dynamic period in the development of Britain's railways. They are historically important in the DMU story and would be useful addition to many preserved railways.
The society was formed in early 2011 and fundraising is ongoing in readiness for the time when the Pacer fleet is withdrawn. We are all volunteers and membership is open to anyone with an interest in this particular aspect of our railways. The PPS produces its own in-house magazine "The Pacer Chaser" as well as hosting an online Pacer Archive and has acquired a growing collection of Pacer spares, including the cab front off the now scrapped 142059.
