Our trains are operated by historic carriages built in the 1950’s or earlier. They have ‘slam’ type doors and a step into the train. One of our carriages has been refurbished with accommodation for up to three wheelchairs, this carriage is usually conveyed on most of our buffet car trains. On other trains it is not always possible to convey wheelchairs through the usual carriage doors however they can be accommodated in the guard’s compartment of every train. Our volunteer staff will give every assistance to you in your journey.
Carriage of Dogs
The Railway is pleased to welcome all dogs and their owners onto our trains, subject to their owners ensuring that their dogs do not cause a distraction to the operation of the train or inconvenience and difficulties to fellow passengers. In addition dogs are not allowed onto carriage seats.
In the opinion of the Station Master or Guard, if a dog is not in the control of its owner and is causing problems, the Station Master or Guard may, at their discretion, request the dog be taken away from the Railway’s premises or removed from the train at the next available station or be cared for by its owner in a more appropriate area away from other passengers.
The Railway makes no charge for dogs, as they are unlikely to appreciate the joys of the Railway as much as their owners.
The hours or times stated in the Company’s Timetables, Books, Bills and Notices are appointed as those at which it is intended – so far as circumstances will permit – that the trains shall depart from and arrive at the several stations, but their departure or arrival at the time stated is not guaranteed, nor will the Company under any circumstances be held responsible for delay or detention, however occasioned, or any consequences arising therefrom. The right to alter or suspend the running of any train is reserved.
Copies of the Company’s Conditions of Carriage are available for inspection at any station booking office.
