    Josh. Happy to email article to anybody interested in it but Bullet-In is a subscription journal so I better not post it on open page. Have hospital appointments coming up so there will be a few weeks delay before article ready.

    I scanned your ‘riding the rail’ pages. Very interesting. Have no experience of using any UK train as a wheelchair user. Our local rail company, Southern, requires 24 hours notice of exact outbound and inbound train you will be using to obtain assistance, which is hardly practical. Cancellations, endless strikes and elevators out of order just adds to the difficulties. Even fit, abled-bodied people have problems getting on and off Southern trains at certain stations due to the vintage nature of the network. Indeed, at Clapham Junction – billed as the UK’s busiest station – one platform is permanently out of use due to the huge drop/gap from train to platform.
