Trains & pushchairs

Going to be doing a 3 hour train journey in August, 2 hours on CrossCountry and one via Northern Rail. I'll be on my own with DS who is 2.10, he can walk of course, but I'd prefer some method of restraining him in the train station if possible.

I'm thinking it's likely that our luggage for the week is going to be crammed into the pushchair, making it difficult to fold down. Does anyone know how pushchair-friendly these companies' trains are?

Oh and an East Coast train on the way home - but that is only for 30 minutes, so I don't mind standing in the corridor for that.

Just stick the pushchair in the area near the doors - it'll be fine. If it's rush hour people will trip over it but with luck you'll get a seat and can ignore them. smile

East Coast slightly harder as the vestibules are away from the seats, but I've always found the guards very helpful at getting me, ds, dn, pushchairs etc onto trains - if only so the train can leave on time!
