  • Trains The railway operates a fleet of historic railway carriages which were built for the line between 1923 and 1938. To access the carriages, there are two steps of 400mm between the platform and the carriage floor. Extra steps are available if required. The carriage doors are 580mm wide and internal gangways are 420mm and 520mm wide. We regret that these vintage carriages are not suitable for customers who need to remain in their wheelchairs.
