Victory in campaign to stop disability unfriendly trains running out of Liverpool

My previous posting of 3rd June reported on the potential for some trains running into and out of Liverpool to Scarborough being disability unfriendly from July this year – the link below refers:-

Thankfully The RAILWAY Magazine reports in its July edition that the plan, which would clearly have made life more difficult for those with disabilities has been dropped.

Some trains out of Liverpool will not be disability accessible? Surely not BUT……

Disability News Service has the story on its web site – see link above

The article does indeed make utterly shocking reading if the facts are as outlined. If they are then Government, the Dept. for Transport and the rail operating companies involved need to explain themselves.

Those with disabilities should be our first thought not our last.
