New Train.

I went on the new Greater Anglia train last week, and was amazed how easy it was to get on and off – just this mini ramp thing that popped out below the doors of the carriage to cover the gap between train and platform.

There was masses of space in the carriage to manoeuvre my powerchair. The staff were lovely and couldn’t do enough to help.

The only thing I was disappointed with was the lack of tables, the main seating area was up steps, and those seats all had a table shared between four seats.

The accessible area shown in the photo, shows the little place to rest a phone or a drink, but you wouldn’t fit more than that on the ledge available. There were however plug sockets underneath this. One standard plug socket, and two USB sockets.

There was also a disabled loo just by this seating area, I didn’t use it so can’t comment on the space/access etc….

Photos showing spaces for two wheelchairs, and five flip down seats. Emergency call button by each wheelchair space as well.
