We had a ride on this train 9 September 2013. We parked at the Marina end of the line and rode down to Brighton Pier. I asked the driver about the time of the last train and was told 5.00pm. When we returned at 4.15 we were told that the service had closed because of the ‘weather‘. This seemed reasonable. The Station was deserted and it had been raining hard but was now dry. We were given a refund for the return fare and set off on the long walk back to our car, parked at the Marina end. That’s about a 1 mile walk and not made easy by one of us being in a wheelchair. Image our surprise when the service almost immediately resumed and were passed by 3 further trains during the 1 hour trudge back to our car. Call me a cynic but this seemed like clear discrimination. Was it the wheelchair or us? The wheelchair is folding and small enough to fit easily between the seats without damage. There is a notice at both stations that all buggies must be folded. It seems that the children with their buggies and the disabled with their wheelchairs are not welcome on this train.
