The Mark 3s? I wasn't entirely clear: they only have the ex-1st Class "wheelchair space", and for some reason not the standard class one? It has hit my radar but I'm not up on the detail.

Just told I’ve been successful in the ballot for Lords Questions on Thursday at 11 to ask Government what steps they are taking to ensure that all train operating companies are complying with the Equality Act 2010 in providing assistance to disabled passengers.

It’s funny when you’re out with ableds & you say you need rest & they ask you how much more pain you can tolerate bc there’s a place they want to be. Lol, babe I’ve been in pain since I woke up. I’m simply letting you know now bc It’s about to go from tolerable to seeing stars

It's alright, our disability access needs are saved! are engineering more 'turn up and go'. It says it on the banner so it must be true!

At Manchester Victoria, staff from other stations and areas are working a terrible evening of disruption, volunteering so those amazing Northern staff who ran upstairs into the devastation this time last year can have the day off. My hat is truly off to them.

I was contemplating offering to go to the ticket office to tell them myself, but then thought: I don't fancy the queue and the hassle, and it's their responsibility not mine. Meanwhile I hope nobody gets an unreadable ticket for an imminent train...

Told 's Leeds customer information point that a Leeds ticket machine isn't printing properly so they might want to get somebody to look at it. Leeds CIP said it's Leeds Ticket Office's responsibility, so did nowt.

They certainly haven't offered it. Tea and biscuits they say. And I don't feel inclined to ask.

I do a very lot of such work without getting paid. Out of (enlightened?) self-interest and through bloody-minded intent to make the rail industry meet its obligations. But I'm not going to expend significant dosh attending this event. Also I don't represent...

Their actions were heroic, and the effect on them profound. God bless you all.

I am traveling to Manchester today for a different event. But my thoughts and admiration are very much with the people, especially the Northern staff who dashed upstairs from Victoria station (underneath the arena) to that horrific scene of devastation, panic, suffering and death

That is also my experience. I wrote a blog about it last year, after assisted travel said it was going to be OK: But I note that Northern's website is stating it is fully accessible.

MottMacDonald expect to be paid, doubtless, and are being so; also expenses covered. But the people whose experience they state is important? Not so much. We have to shell out for the pleasure of giving them our expertise and experience. Said assumptions need challenging.

A private consultancy, , commissioned and paid by (ultimately using DfT money) has offered me the exclusive opportunity to come down to London to give my "important" input to their work. Without pay, and at my own expense.

Excellent food and service, , and posh disabled loos. But the space to the side of the loo is for wheelchair users so they can transfer sideways from their wheelchair, your palm plants prevent this; And having a lock that can't be overridden from outside is a safety risk

The Royal Wedding is a fairytale. It shows that even if you come from a deeply dysfunctional family, a broken home, and are of immigrant - stock you can still marry into the Markle family.
