55703 M6 Junction 16 27 August 1995

The Pacer fleet has suffered a number of fires over the years, and several units have been withdrawn as a result. 142053 was slightly luckier, in that it survived once such incident. The engine literally fell off 55703 on the Cumbrian Coast line, derailing the train! The fire damaged vehicle is pictured on an Alleys Transport trailer near the M6 Junction 16, on 27 August 1995.
