*Not sure which section so I'll drop it in here* https://www.theboltonnews.co.uk/new...n-again-but-commuters-will-not-be-allowed-on/ Presumably there will be no timetabled departure and signs will say "This train should not be boarded" or something? So when these trains call at Bolton to drop off, how can passengers be prevented from joining? If they got on, with a BON/MAN ticket, unless it's a specific advance then what can a guard/conductor do? I suppose they can state BON>MAN tickets "not valid on this service" but how would they cope with Manchester Wayfarers etc? And those ticketed to the airport but simply alight at Piccadilly and disappear? As one of the commenters mentioned, Are TPE trying to create more problems than they are trying to solve? Are there any other examples in the country? In the 90's the then TOC running Airport/Piccadilly/Bolton/Preston in the wee small hours (0120 ish) said it was set down only at Piccadilly - but many like myself got on at Picc so eventually they decided it was a pointless restriction.
