After the Franchise change, are any TPE services still going from Manchester to Preston via Bolton rather than Wigan? I can't find anything in RTT, but project mapping still shows them there. I know they're meant to go that way again when the electrification is finished, but until then, what's the situation?

The TPE Blackpool/Barrow/Windermere services transferred to Northern last Friday.

Indeed, but this thread seems to imply there are still some coupled 185s split at Preston where one goes to Blackpool as Northern and the other to Glasgow as TPE...

That train runs on Saturday only (1S61 13:00 Manchester Airport to Glasgow Central and detaches 1C53 at Preston). It doesn't serve Bolton.

In simplest terms there are no TPE services via Bolton.

2x 156 4-coach Northern set heading north over Carlisle bridge ~ 15:30 today, which rather suggests some of the former TPE Barrow services may be now handled by 156s
