CRL - Community Rail Lancashire

Autism Friendly Railway Video Released

On the 30th of July 2019, Community Rail Lancashire and Northern launched the UK’s first Autism-Friendly Railway Line, running from Blackburn to Manchester Victoria via Todmorden.

The line includes specialist staff training, tailored line information guides and specific resources.

A video was filmed on launch day and this can be viewed below:
