What do you when you arrive at a station

Assistance is always available from our stations, whether that is delivered by the conductor on the train, or staff at the station.  If you have booked assistance and arrive at a staffed station, please make a member of staff at the ticket office aware that you have arrived. If you have booked assistance and the station is unstaffed, please wait on the platform and the conductor will assist you onto the train. Assistance is also available for customers who do not wish to book in advance, please speak to the station staff or conductor and they would be happy to help.

Station maps

You can find out more about all of our stations thanks to our dedicated station pages.

You can also visit many of our stations virtually before you travel thanks to our 3D interactive maps which are on each station page.


 If the person you care for has a Disabled Persons Railcard you will be able to get 1/3rd off your ticket too.
