Bits have started to fall off the neglected Station Hotel in Ayr and, as from a few days ago, the whole area is cordoned off, including the ticket office, which has become a man with a card machine at a more northerly entrance to platform 1. A portable cabin is in place as a temporary office but all the electronics have still to be installed. The neglect has gone on for years with the Council seemingly powerless to act effectively and it could soon be curtains for this famous building. Photographed on 6th July 2018.
