    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.
  • Me My Wife And Daughter Will Be Heading Down That Weekend. Are There Train Rides With Disabled Access On All Trains And Carriages. Thanks

    • Most carriages have access, but some of the older carriages are not. Im sure the staff will advise you of which trains have the best access for you.

      Enjoy your trip!
