The Railroad reserves the right to change train equipment, schedules and/or fares without advance notice. The railroad cannot be responsible for unscheduled delays. The Connersville Station is handicap accessible. Our trips are not currently handicap accessible. We hope to fix this in the future. Most times if someone is not restricted to a chair we can accommodate them on our cars. There are between 4 to six steps to climb to board the cars. The 1920's & 1930's passenger cars used on our excursions were constructed before disability accessibility laws were adopted. We will make all reasonable efforts to accommodate differently abled passengers who desire to ride one of our trips. Platforms, boarding areas, stairs, step-stools, seating, and especially doorways, passageways and aisles may not accommodate all passengers. Historic and antiquated rail passenger equipment, like that used on our excursions, is exempt from ADA regulations under U.S. Code: Title 42: Section 12184.
