Not sure if there is any truth in this but I found this on another forum:
TPE will soon be replacing Virgins cross country services to Glasgow and starting from Manchester Airport, and probably run to Chester also.
Axe services completely from Dronfield, Chester-le-Street, Northampton, somewhere in Scotland, Llandudno and Newquay. Also the Holyhead to Birmingham New Street and vice versa route (one a day each way at like 2am exists still)
Axe services to more limited ones at Tiverton Parkway, Leeds, Wakefield Westgate, towards Penzance? and between Edinburgh and Newcastle.
Increase service frequency between Chester and London by having services once an hour, and every 2 hours these services will continue onto Holyhead.
Bournemouth services will be extended to Poole
Cardiff Central services will be extended to Swansea, calling at Neath, Port Talbot Parkway and Bridgend
Increase services to Gloucester, Weston super Mare, Doncaster, Macclesfield, Congleton (why I do not know) Bolton, Liverpool Lime Street, Runcorn, Stockport and inevitably New Street and Crewe
New routes will include
1. Liverpool to Brighton and Portsmouth Harbour, making Manchester - Brighton obselete
2. An extra branch from Preston to Blackpool North
3. Gloucester to Swindon will exist
4. Manchester will be a through station and provide more services for Bolton, Macclesfield, Congleton and Stoke
Services towards Leamington Spa/Oxford/Banbury etc and further south will call additionally at Solihull
Possibly increased services between London Euston and Liverpool Lime Street/Manchester Piccadilly departing every half hour, and Manchester Piccadilly every 20 minutes
A new service from Southampton Central to Aberdeen via Manchester Piccadilly and WCML towards Edinburgh
