Disable Access at our Railway
There is reserved disabled parking at Shackerstone Station and a toilet in the main station building. Shackerstone Station Railwayana Museum is not fully accessible due the nature of the building.
At Shenton Station there is a toilet provided by the council in the car park, however there are no reserved parking spaces.
Market Bosworth Station currently has no permanent disable visitor facilities.
The majority of the open areas
at the railway have unmade
surfaces (gravel), which can be negotiated by wheelchairs with care. Shackerstone
Stations platforms are constructed from both slabbed and unmade surfaces.
Market Bosworth Station platform surface is unmade. Shenton Station
platform is a tarmac surface.
We have ramp access to a number of coaches. Unfortunately, due to the original coach designs, it is not possible to gain
wheelchair access to seating sections. Wheelchair users can usually be accommodated in the brake carriage on most normal service trains.
For those who can walk a few steps we
can usually get them to a normal seat.
If you are travelling on a special events such as Thomas the Tank Engine, Rails and Ales, etc, please ring ahead to check if these facilities are available on the day.
