SPECIAL NEEDS INFORMATION
Cliffhanger will not be
exhibited in any venue which does not have full disabled access.
Cliffhanger is displayed behind a barrier at
exhibitions. As the layout is popular, there can be several rows of people
behind it. This can make it difficult to see for someone in a wheelchair. If
this is the case, please do not hesitate to ask an operator for help and
they will assist you in finding a place where you can view comfortably.
Cliffhanger is a very unusual layout as it is more vertical than deep. Sea
level is 20" from floor level so much of the detail will be close to you.
From a wheelchair, the trains are visible but you will not be able to see
the tracks themselves.
For those with hearing difficulties, the upper
pelmets display much useful information about the layout. In addition,
there is a display screen that introduces each train and also shows short
videos about how the layout was built. The display screen will not be
available for the National Exhibition at Warley 2012.
