Brohltalbahn tries to make travel on "Vulkan-Expreß" as pleasant as possible for people with reduced mobility. Please note, however, that the design of the historic vehicles sometimes means restrictions on freedom of movement or even the boarding of people with reduced mobility.

We have put together the most important information for you:

Accessibility of our train stations & boarding the train

Our train stations offer a historic ambience and are usually not barrier-free. Platforms and entrances are sometimes level, blind guidance systems are not available. The entrance to our historic wagons is always connected with 2-3 steps, depending on the platform height. Mobile ramps are available for loading rollators, wheelchairs, strollers and bicycles into the luggage car. We are working to significantly improve accessibility in the next few years.

Our train stations are characterized as follows:

  • Brohl B.E.

    Brohl B.E. can be reached from the station forecourt via a long staircase or alternatively via a stony driveway. We recommend people who rely on stepless access to walk from the bridge ramp of Brohltalstraße across our premises in front of the locomotive shed and then on the gravel path along the rail tracks to the platform. Length of this access: approx. 300 m.

Rollators

We are happy to transport rollators in our luggage car. The aisles and entrances of our passenger cars are unfortunately too narrow to place rollators directly at your seat. Our staff will be happy to help you get started and store your rollator in the luggage car for you.

Wheelchairs

We are happy to transport wheelchairs in our luggage car. The aisles and entrances of our passenger cars are unfortunately too narrow to allow wheelchair users direct access. Our staff will be happy to help you get started and store your wheelchair in the luggage car. A minimal ability to walk and climb stairs is therefore required. Unfortunately, we cannot transport electric wheelchairs due to weight reasons.

Stroller

We are also happy to accommodate strollers for you in our luggage car. Unfortunately, the aisles and entrances of our passenger carriages are too narrow to place baby carriages directly at your seats. Strollers with a removable shell are therefore an advantage. Please remember to take all the utensils you might need for your child with you to your seat. Our staff will be happy to stow your stroller in the luggage car for you.

Bicycles, e-bikes, segways etc.

We store bicycles, e-bikes, segways, etc. for you in our luggage car. Mobile ramps are available for loading. Our staff will be happy to help you store your bikes. Bicycle parking spaces can be reserved online via the Regio-Radler website.

Luggage

We would be happy to accommodate your luggage (suitcases, bags, sports equipment, etc.) in our luggage car. Smaller pieces of luggage and hand luggage can also be stowed directly in the passenger cars in the luggage racks located above the seats or under the seats.
