This Website is built with Bluevoda from Vodahost
talked about taking the Train Restaurant “Voiture L’Orient Express”
which is essentially a steam train which is a three hour journey from
the Station at Mortagne-sur-Sevre to Les Epesses where there is a half
hour stop to turn the train around for the return journey. En route the
train stops for 45 minutes on the impressive 38 meter high Viaduct
Barbin which overlooks the Sevre Nantaise and offers spectacular views
of the surrounding countryside, or so the official website says.
Unfortunately the website also says that wheelchair access is not
available, and although disabled I do not use a wheelchair I am not
prepared to patronise places that are so obviously discriminatory. It is
a shame as I would have liked to make the train ride, though I wasn’t
particularly impressed with the 2 menus on offer.
The time has come when attractions like this must make whatever
alterations are required to allow disabled people the same access as
their able bodied counterparts and for this reason I am unable to
recommend this gastronomic excursion.
