Altrincham station was refurbished into a transport interchange in 2014, and is now a fascinating mixture of the old 1881 building and new glass and steel structures to form the footbridge and bus interchange.

The entrance to the new concourse area with the old station building behind it:

Inside the concourse, looking north; the bus stands are on the left with the rail and tram platforms over to the right:

From the concourse, an entrance leads on to platform 1:

Platforms 2 and 3 are on an island with one side (platform 2) being a tram platform and the other a heavy rail platform:

A small path crosses behind the buffers of platforms 1 and 2, so here we look north from the buffers towards the footbridge and the canopy beyond it:

The footbridge joins the island platform to the outer platform 4:

At the other end of platform 4 a disused overgrown path leads south. This used to lead to a barrow crossing before the station was refurbished:

To the south of the station a road bridge crosses the line. Here we look north from that bridge at the station complex:
