    Was waiting for a train at Bolton station the other day when I spotted an underground area just about visible from platform 1 - near to the coffee shop.

    Didn't get chance to take a photo but have managed to find some historic Street View photography which shows where the area can be seen:

    It was dark and I was stood on the edge of the platform looking across so couldn't make out much but it looked like the space was used as a plant room of some sort - I could just about make out 'Main electrical switchgear' on a cupboard door.

    Anyone know anything more about this? I'm thinking it probably extends beyond the one area that's just about visible from ground level...

    probably a circuit room or substation,
    besides it is on BTP jurisdiction & isn't worth the risk.
