    Modern day Pacer

    So if Pacers are out by 2019 (I know its not 100%), surely we need something like them, but better, as a replacement? It would have bogies, 2/3 carriages, proper doors, DDA compliancy. (Maybe a toilet for the longer journeys it might end up on?) How about the bus design again? Along the...
