In order to help you plan your trip with mobility impaired, infirm or elderly visitors, here's a little more information about 'Petros': our coach designed especially for wheelchair users. We suggest that if you feel you would like to travel in Petros that you telephone ahead to book so we can reserve accomodation for you - at no extrra charge! This is especially important during our busy events, 1940's, Gala etc and during school holidays.

We recommend that visitors with special needs or specific requirements telephone our Booking Office (01580 765155 Mon-Fri 09:30 - 17:00; Sat & Sun 09:30 - 13:00) for friendly assistance: accommodation may be reserved by telephone on any train service at no additional cost

Some of our other carriages have ramped access too and there is full wheelchair access to the shop and Station Refreshment Rooms at Tenterden Town Station. The Colonel Stephens Railway Museum has level access with 42" aisles. The Tenterden ticket office is fitted with an induction loop.
