Accessibility Statement

The Foxfield Railway is a historic railway in rural Staffordshire. We welcome customers of all abilities.

We operate a fleet of mainly ex-mainline railway carriages and most of our normal service trains have space available for customers with mobility impairments including some wheelchair spaces. As space is inevitably limited, we strongly recommend that wheelchair users contact us in advance in order that we can make suitable arrangements. This will help us to make your visit a more pleasurable one. A step and wheelchair ramp are carried on all normal trains and these are available to help you to access the trains – please ask a member of staff.
Wheelchair users please note: our ramps have a weight limit of 250kg. They will take an ordinary wheelchair, plus user, plus pusher or a small battery operated chair. However, they are not suitable for motorized scooters or buggies. There is a toilet on all of our normal service trains which is available to customers on request. Owing to its small dimensions, we regret that this toilet is not suitable for wheelchair users.

We welcome assistance dogs in all our carriages.

If you have any questions as to how we can help you further, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to help you to plan your visit. Telephone us on 01782 396210.
