  1. Is Edaville handicapped accessible_
    Yes, Edaville is accessible to the handicapped. The entire parking lot, walkway and station area is paved and on a level surface. There are no hills to negotiate. The Freight House Cafe, souvenir shop and restrooms are also easily accessible and are located at ground level, with no stairs to climb. The museum is the only building that's not at ground level. It is located at the top of a very small hill and there is a ramp that goes from a paved sidewalk to the entranceway.

    Yes. There is handicapped parking just to the left of the main entrance. If there are parking attendants on duty, ask them to direct you to the handicapped parking area.

  3. Can I ride the train if I require a wheelchair_
    Yes, you can. The train that runs every day has a caboose with a wide sliding door on the side. Whenever this train arrives at the station, the door of the caboose is positioned adjacent to a sturdy wooden ramp that allows for direct access to the train. However, because Edaville USA's train is narrow gauge, and therefore quite small, a passenger with a wheelchair may only ride in the caboose. It is the only car in the train with room to accommodate a wheelchair.
