    I know trains from Clitheroe/Blackburn come into & leave from Platform 1 at Bolton and was wondering whether anything from there ever comes into and leaves from Platform 3 and if not why not just out of interest

    Nothing is booked to AFAIK, but it does happen during disruption etc, but it does block everything westbound into Manchester through Bolton for about 5 minutes.

    I have just checked Traveline North East (an excellent website for ease of checking platforms for trackbashers such as myself) for tomorrow and Saturday 12th November 2011. It shows the 1500 Manchester Victoria to Clitheroe going via Bolton platform 3. I have not checked any other services but from memory I thought this was the only one.

    Did this morning because the inbound Blackburn service was late, when they re-model it for platform 5/7 then they should look at making the route accessable from pt.4 aswell as 1 and 3. And 1, 3 accessable all north and 4, 5/7 to all north

    The very best part of rural Cheshire East.
    I was recently on Bolton station at 1510 when an elderly couple were quite concerned that their train to Blackburn was shown on the automated displays as leaving from platform 3, as they had always travelled at other times of the day from the normal platform. I continued my journey onwards to Manchester Piccadilly platform 13 on one of the Class 180 scheduled for Hazel Grove from this same platform 3, which departed prior to the Blackburn-bound train from the same platform.
