Rail Delivery Group has announced that its accessibility expert, Dominic Lund-Conlon, has been announced as one of the most influential people with a disability in the UK.

The announcement was made during a reception at the House of Lords for the launch of the Shaw Trust Disability Power List 100.

The list was compiled by an independent judging panel, chaired by Kate Nash OBE, Ambassador to Disability Rights UK.

Dominic Lund-Conlon is Head of Accessibility and Inclusion at the Rail Delivery Group. He works with rail companies, local authorities and disabled customers to improve accessibility on the railway.

Dominic also founded ReviewMyWheelchair.co.uk to provide unbiased reviews of wheelchairs and wheelchair accessories.

What did the officials say?

Dominic Lund-Conlon said:

“I believe everyone should be able to travel with comfort and dignity. It’s a privilege to be named as part of this list for my work helping to make that happen.

“The railway has exciting projects ahead including station improvements, new and refurbished accessible trains and an overhaul of the passenger assistance system. I look forward to working with train companies and the government to help open up opportunities for more people to travel by train.”

I have had an interest in Railways for as long as I can remember. I am a member of a number of heritage railways and actively volunteer at 2 of them. I enjoy all types of railways, real life, model and simulations. I started RailAdvent in 2014 and am the main editor of the site.
  • Instead of being offered photographs of locomotives, I would enjoy watching videos of said locomotives. I was born in 1945 and have always enjoyed cinema, and similar activities……photographs do not bring the pleasure that a fast paced video does………..
