Thanks to a Stannah Lowriser 2.0 wheelchair platform lift, access to a titled dining carriage in Yorks National Railway Museum (NRM) has been granted to all.
The Lowriser brings step-free access to platform level where the Countess of York resides a fully refurbished refreshment halt offering high tea and private dining in Victorian splendour.
The Stannah Lowriser was specified by independent Project Manager, Alan Brockington, who has specified Stannah lift products on numerous projects; they have an established, reliable reputation and the installations have been trouble-free on all occasions.
The Lowriser travels 1548mm between Courtyard and platform levels. The external lift offers through-entry with an in-built ramp for easy access and simple controls. Easy to install, the Lowriser platform lift does not require a pit and has a roomy 800mm x 1460mm platform for optimum user manoeuvrability and comfort.
Mark Knibbs, Science Museum Group Catering Manager, parent company to the National Railway Museum, comments: Access for all is key to our operation and our Stannah Lowriser is a premium piece of rolling stock, helping everyone experience the opulence and culinary excellence reminiscent of luxury European train travel in a venue celebrating the story of rail transport in Britain and its impact on society.
