Station buffet hits the buffers

The station buffet and cafe at Altrincham station was given an overhaul in 2010 and looked promising when it reopened as Hamilton's Express. With a modern appearance it somehow still retained the feel and structure of previous cafes here. Sadly Hamilton's failed to take off so the station buffet is closed once more...

My apologies for not commenting on anyone's photos this past week. I am just back from a week on Fuerteventura, so will try to catch up with everyone over the coming evenings...


  1. I love this place, looks cozy and the decoration is very beautiful!

  2. That's a shame as there's lots to interest the caficionado.

  3. It looks like a nice place. I always wonder what it is that makes or breaks a place like this.

  4. I like the bright colored wall, with the photographs, the fireplace and the open door.
    I suddenly got a feel for SPRING.

  5. A bit like 'coming home'.

    Please have a good new week ahead.

  6. As Lincoln Eye said this is a shame. Though having once discussed the rent required by the rail company with someone who used to have a similar place here I am not surprised. They like the high street landlords would rather have a place empty than charge a reasonable rent.
