Ah yes, train travel and wheelchairs. I could write a book. You have to plan like a military campaign, turn up early, shout at the naughty ppl that this IS a wheelchair space, yes, look theres a sticker on the window behind you…
If your on XCountry, then god help you, they believe one size fits all. So I can get the chair in, if I remove the joystick, feet and back wheel. All while Mr Big suitcase is trying to get past.
Highlight? Travelling on Virgin, a train was cancelled, so the next was rammed. The staff were Epic, and got me on. I was stuck in the curvy corridor, as were 10 other ppl, the only bright side being, I had a seat with me!!
My Trekinnetic won’t go on train because its 2 inches too wide for the ramp.
On the plus side, a couple of times at Euston, they have put me in 1st class, cuz there were two many wheelchairs. Free drink and all. Not bad!
