Virgin Trains 'Calm Corner'
Virgin Trains, with the support of industry partners, recently opened the doors to ‘The Calm Corner’ at Crewe station. ‘The Calm Corner’ is a room that is specifically designed to offer customers, especially those with hidden disabilities, a safe and calm environment whilst waiting for their train.
The inspiration for the room, which is the first of its kind on the UK railway network, came from Megan Hughes who was on work experience with Virgin Trains. She came up with the suggestion based on her personal experience of having Asperger Syndrome.
