Accessible Train stations in London - Romford, Elizabeth line.

All the London railway stations :

National Rail lines : Romford station is on TFL Rail, and is Accessible by new lifts providing step-free access to platforms 3,4, and 5.
It is also on the new Elizabeth Line; and this appears to work for accessible travel, if you don't mind using ramps to get onto the trains, if you have a wheelchair! At last, you can finally, at least get onto the platforms, with a wheelchair.
This station has step-free access to all platforms. For access to Platform 1&2, take Lift to subway and use accessible ramps to the platform. The ramps leading from the subway to the platforms are fairly steep.

Trains run every ten minutes towards London, and end at Paddington, rather than stopping at the original Liverpool street station terminus, they are now redirected via Whitechapel through the new Liverpool street (Elizabeth line) station which is basically in a very long tunnel, and involves a lot of walking to exit this station or change lines.
You can change trains along the Elizabeth line to travel as far as Heathrow (or Reading). On the London section of the Elizabeth line between Whitechapel and Paddington, there are trains running every five minutes with alternate services starting from either Shenfield or Abbey Wood; these are on the same platform.

See timetables at TFL for accurate details.

All in all, the new Elizabeth line is amazing. Absolutely brilliant.
