Mind the gap

A short observation based on a delightful train journey last weekend, in which we travelled first class from Norwich to Edinburgh for next to nothing, fuelled constantly by smiling rail staff wielding teas and coffees at each stop. lounging back in comfortable seats and enjoying a spot of free wi-fi. I’m not being sarcastic – it was fab.

Anyway, when visiting the train toilet, which was one of those strange Tardis constructions when you’re never really clear whether you’re locked in or not, I noticed that all of the signs were in English and Braille. This was the case for the flush, the tap, the soap…and the baby changing unit.

Now, I don’t quite understand these things, and I’m sure needs must, but under what circumstances on a high speed train would you expect a blind person to use this ?
