Fantastic experience in recently adapted steam train carriage

I went on the East Lancs Railway Steam Train between Bury and Rawtenstall. The staff and experience far exceeded my expectations. The access to the station is via a ramp once you have purchased your tickets and then for people unable to use the foot bridge, there is access (with help from) a member of staff across the track. The train has a lovely adapted wheelchair carriage with plenty of room. The guard asked me what I thought of the new carriage (which still has all of its original old character and smells) I thought it was amazing. In coming months they are adding further accessible carriages. There's not an accessible toilet on the train but there is at both Bury and Rawtenstall which were extremely clean. A thoroughly fantastic day :)
Transport & Parking
There is a car park right next to the station within 20 metres
Footbridge from station but platform accessible via ramp next to carpark
Nothing was too much
