Pacer to be preserved

Great news! All the passengers missing the Pacers as they are withdrawn from service, will soon be able to travel on a Pacer in preservation!
Class 144 No.144003 will be moving to the GCR(N) during early 2020 and should be operational when it arrives.

Any thoughts?

All well and good if it's just used on a Diesel gala or even a DMU gala. Can't see the average visitor who'd spent years commuting on one of these things being filled with joy if he turns up with his family to find it at the platform on a general running day at the GCR (north)

It seems I'm a bit behind the times and there's more preserved than I realised! (although the unit going to the GCR(N) is the first class 144 to be preserved).
140001 is at the Keith & Dufftown Railway
141108 is already preserved and in traffic at the Colne Valley Railway
141113 is owned by Llangollen Railcar Group, but is currently based at Midland Railway, Buttlerley
142001 is now part of the National Collection, initially going to Shildon
142029 is at Chasewater
