Inspector’s comments

A wheelchair user (manual) Male / capable of moving for short distances using a cane
There are no particular bumps at the entrance, ticket barrier, or platforms, which makes it easy to move around in a wheelchair.
There are some slopes at the platform, so people with week arms may need support.
At the time of the inspection, I could board the train smoothly.
I usually move around by car, but if I have the opportunity to use the train, I’d like to.
