Travelling by train

Special arrangements can be made for disabled or mobility-impaired passengers when travelling by train. For example, National Rail staff can usually help passengers get on and off a train.

National Rail

National Rail need advance warning if you need any assistance from staff - ideally more than 24 hours' notice. This is particularly important if your journey includes getting on or off a train at an unmanned station.

Staff cannot lift disabled passengers or heavy items like mobility scooters. When booking your journey, give as much detail as possible about your needs. For services that offer seat reservations, the local contact person can reserve a seat or wheelchair space for you without charge.
Intercity services

All intercity train services are wheelchair accessible. Access to the train is provided by a ramp kept at the station. Wheelchair accessible sleeper cabins are available on overnight trains between London and Scotland but not on those between London and the West of England.
Local and regional services

Most trains can accommodate wheelchair users and new trains also have facilities to assist sensory impaired people, for example public information systems that are both visual and audible.

Re: Travelling by train

Well here are the firm are similar if you talking about some coaches and train and else , The main thing is that the disabled people should have every thing facilitates if they travel. Just think that if they have to come off by train suddenly then what happen?
So they need some spacial care to be come up and come off by train. The spacial wheel chair is not that much important as you say here but some special watch  or care should be taken for them.

yes you are right. only faciliting to get to the train is not enough. separate compartment is a good concept where one can get all the necessary things without moving out of the compartment. plus there should be one or two attendent in the compartment.
