I intend to travel to the gambia 28th february this year, however I am having to travel alone by railway with my electric chair till I reach an english airport.Has anyone had this experience, if so any advice?
I dont know if I am slightly mad doing this but what the hec
After my dad broke his hip he had to use crutches to get around and he had to travel on trains as he worked in London (he's also blind). When he got to his departure station he would advise a member of staff on the platform that he needed help at the other end and they would phone through his train details as well as which carriage he was on. When he arrived they would have somebody waiting to take him off the train and take him to his next departure point.
Train companies have to do this by law now and they have ramps at each station which can be connected to the carriages for easy access by wheelchair users.
