PAC - Thameslink offers bright future for Pacers

This from The Man by the Photocopier...

Eye readers might be intrigued to learn that the new Thameslink rolling stock will be unrefurbished Pacers!

And all the time we thought it was going to be some wizzo-super new version of the electric Desiros from our chums at Siemens.

But the Public Accounts Committee knows better, judging by this highly appropriate picture on its website which accompanies the Committee's latest Thameslink moan (shurely "carefully researched and insightful report"? Ed).

An additional exclusive is an ERTMS semaphore. Another British first?

And where was this charming picture taken? Must be Radlett. There are certainly no overhead wires to spoil the view!
