The rail industry has no scheme whereby passengers are compensated on the basis of the quality of rolling stock provided for each journey they undertake. Northern’s new trains will replace the Pacer fleet and the first was retired in August. Northern plans to remove two thirds of its 102 Pacers by December 2019.
