Text Relay Service

If you are hard of hearing you can contact us through the RNID’s Text Relay service. Text Relay, or Next Generation Text (NGT), is a service run by the Royal National Institute for the Deaf (RNID) and funded by BT using textphones and RNID Text Relay Assistants. It helps deaf, deaf-blind, hard of hearing and speech-impaired people make and receive calls to and from hearing people.

How you use NGT depends on what you need it for. To help keep it simple, the service has been split into four sections to match individual’s needs.

  • Type & Read is best if you can’t hear and don’t use your voice
  • Speak & Read should be used if you can’t hear but do use your voice
  • Type & Hear will be most useful if you can hear but don’t use your voice
  • Speak & Hear works best if you can hear and want to speak to someone who uses NGT

To call our Guest Service Centre via a  textphone dial 1 800 103 300 600 500 and Text Relay Direct will connect a Text Relay Assistant into the call if needed. No pause is needed between ‘18001’ and the phone number, it is treated as one complete phone number and can be stored as a single number in the phone’s memory.

If you would like us to call you back on your textphone, please advise us that you use a textphone and we will use the Text Relay Service when we call you.

To find out more about the RNID’s Text Relay and the Next Generation Text (NGT) service, including using the app on your device, please visit the website here.

With a range of accessible accommodation, we are committed to ensuring our accessible guests have the space they need to travel comfortably and safely between London and Scotland.

The rooms themselves are spacious and wheelchair friendly, with two alarms installed to ensure maximum peace of mind and a lower sink and larger table than in other rooms. Immediately outside each room is an accessible toilet.

Club Car

On most services, our accessible double room has direct wheelchair access to the Club Car through a wheelchair accessible connection between coaches, and the Club Car also has a dedicated wheelchair space.

Club Car – Fort William Routes 

On our London to Fort William route wheelchair users in an Accessible Twin Room can enjoy an evening meal from our room service menu and breakfast in the Club Car.

On our Fort William to London route, wheelchair users in our Accessible Twin rooms can enjoy an evening meal in the Club Car and breakfast served to their room only.

This is due to our train formation, as this service shares a Club Car with our Aberdeen service to/ from Edinburgh to London

Guests who are booked into our Accessible Double Room will not have access to our Club Car but can order from our room service menu.

Club Car – Glasgow Routes

Our Glasgow services have two accessible coaches. Coach J is located next to the Club Car and Coach P is located at the end of the train and has no access to the Club Car.

Due to limited power capacity we are not able to offer charging facilities for powered wheelchairs or CPAP/BPAP machines, ventilators and other medical equipment on board our services. We accept self powered devices but cannot offer charging facilities.

Station Lounges and the Access Map

We are determined to enhance our offering to accessible users, which is why we have built accessible shower facilities at our new station lounges in Inverness, Dundee, Fort William, Leuchars, Perth and Stirling, in addition to those already provided by operators of other stations.

All of our trains have accessible accommodation, but unfortunately not all of the stations we serve are fully accessible.

The interactive Access Map allows you to view all stations across Britain and identify whether they are accessible. Details include whether stations have step free or partial step free access and what facilities are available at each station, including accessible toilets and changing places.
