Alternative Interpretation, written by a community member with lived experience of disability, D/deafness and/or neurodivergence, as part of the Curating for Change project: “This might look unnecessary or confusing to you, however for me, this feels like such an important piece of equipment for a train. I have gotten onto so many trains hoping it’s going to the right place, as I’ve struggled to read or even find the limited signage that provides this information. I always feel relief when I get onto a train that has signs in the middle or end of carriages telling me clearly where the train is heading. It also means I can ‘track’ the train as we travel, reassuring me I’m not going to miss my stop, as well as how much further I have to go. This can be another reassuring factor, as train journeys can be uncomfortable for me due to the overwhelming nature of them and how long they take. Without these signs and signals, there is an extra layer of work and stress added to my journey when having to figure everything out and hope for the best.”
