I am amazed that, as far as I know, no female wheelchair user was ever sexually assaulted in this type of carriage, considering she would have no access to any alarm bell, nor would it be likely for any witnesses who could get help. The use of this carriage represents a policy of apartheid for wheelchair users by the British Rail Board although people have been using wheelchairs in the UK for far longer than the existence of the train.
