I did but it seems EMT sorted there problems out while TPE struggled to find solutions

Looks like electric working between Bolton and Preston starts on 12th February - at least that's the date Manchester-Glasgow services are shown via Bolton in open train times.

The services running through from Scotland to Manchester Victoria (much reduced)will all be diverted via Atherton on Saturday 02nd Sep, a rare bit of track for TPE services.

I wonder whether they have been 185s or towed by a diesel loco?

A limited service which were pathed to be operated by 100mph DMUs i.e. 185s: http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/search/a...wtt&toc=TP

The Newcastle-Liverpool services were terminating short at Victoria due to the Eccles route being closed, so that would have freed up a couple of 185s.

The 68s, which are to be used to haul the mk5s, have been named after British Navy vessels. 68029 has been called Destroyer, so if there's a late running Pacer train it might be caught up by Destroyer!
