The new Northern timetable for Barrow and the Cumbrian coast (found here) seems to list a train that doesn't run. On page 19 of the pdf, rightmost column, there is listed a working departing Preston at 18:47 and arriving to Barrow at 20:06, but this train appears neither in RTT nor National Rail enquiries. Does anyone have any idea what's going on? I did check and everything else in the timetable is in RTT.

Looks like the service got changed to 19:08 and out-of-date information has been included in the printed timetable. The same is true of the 17:23 Piccadilly-Hazel Grove service which wrongly has been shown as still being a 17:23 Piccadilly-Chinley service in the Hope Valley timetable.

Tweeted Northern about it and they've admitted its a mistake at their end and they will update timetables and their booking engine accordingly

The service did actually exist anyway there's a unit (Class 185) and traincrew down to work it.

RTT shows 1C56, 1847 Preston - Barrow 2006, in the Working Timetable for tomorrow and subsequent days. It was there two months ago when I worked out the diagrams for this post (see Diagram 4), so there must have been a temporary glitch since.

It is in fact a portion working from Manchester Airport (1729), the front portion being 1N63 to Blackpool North (dep Preston 1841).

The clue is in the UID code - anything starting with
an 'O' (freight or passenger) is a vSTP working.

STP workings use other prefixes, such as R/U for freight
and S/Q/X (and others) for passenger workings.
