Venue Description

We operate a fleet of mainly pre-1960's railway carriages and most of our normal service trains have space available for customers with mobility impairments including some wheelchair spaces. As space is inevitably limited, we strongly recommend that wheelchair users contact us in advance in order that we can make suitable arrangements. This will help us to make your visit a more pleasurable one


The East Lancashire Railway welcomes customers of all abilities. A step and wheelchair ramp are carried on all normal trains and these are available to help you to access or leave the trains – please ask a member of staff for assistance. Wheelchair users please note: our ramps have a weight limit of 250kg. They will take an ordinary wheelchair, plus user, plus pusher or a small battery operated chair. However, they are not suitable for motorized scooters or buggies.
