The BAe 146/Avro RJ series are not equipped with thrust reversers.
They do, however, have a funky tail spoiler that comes out on landing to help slow.

You know, I love the look of the Avro (Like a mini-jumbo!) & I've seen hundreds of these takeoff and land at EDI (every second flight is a BA/AF(cityjet) Avro), and it didn't even occur to me they aren't reverser equipped.

It's amazing how quickly they slow even without reversers though. :mrgreen:

The photo you've got above is of EI-RJH...I've seen her MANY times at edi. I've attached a link to a video of one of her Cityjet sister ships leaving edi after a quick taxi, followed by an EMB145. In fact, quite routinely we'll have 4 or 5 on stand at any one time. Avro RJs, 319(LOADS!), 737(Lots too), 320, 321, 757, EMB135/145, EMB195, Saab 340, DHC Dash-8 Q400....That's about the calibre of stuff I get to see! Edi is not the place for large airliners - The spotters went nuts when a Corsair 744 came in on a troop flight a couple of weeks ago!

If you haven't heard of Flightlevel350.com you'll love it - It's like Youtube, but solely for aviation vids.

FWIW, the Fokker F-28 also lacks thrust reversers.  It, too, has a funky tail-mounted clamshell speedbrake.  When I flew on an F-28 a long time ago, I asked the pilots about the lack of reversers.  They said the F-28 has strong wheel brakes which are surprisingly effective when deployed along with spoilers and the clamshell speedbrake.  Here are a couple of photos which show the F-28's deployed speedbrake:
