Platform 1 Pacer lifted into Huddersfield Station

A retired train carriage was lowered into position at Huddersfield Station for local charity Platform 1, breathing new life into a Pacer train and giving it a new permanent home. The 19-tonne carriage was lifted into position overnight by a crane positioned on St George’s Street, hoisting it over the high wall into the station. 

WG Tanker Group Ltd supports Porterbrook, Northern and Arriva Traincare in preparing and painting the vehicle, which has been converted to meet the charity requirements.

The train delivered to Platform 1 was provided by rolling stock company Porterbrook and has been in service since 1986, travelling over three million miles across the network in that time.

“This train will now take people on a journey of development and deliver them to a more happy, secure life.”
