On 3-4 January 2017, commuters return to work as train fares continue to rise. We’re teaming up with We Own It and Action For Rail to organise two nationwide days of action (in England on 3rd, Scotland on 4th) to protest against higher fares, reduced staffing and demand the public ownership of our railways now!
Protests are taking place at more than one hundred stations up-and-down the country. Please see the Action for Rail website for details and come out and join us!

The irony of rail privatisation is that the Department for Transport now has more direct control over our railways than they ever did with the arms-length British Rail. And, yes, they are certainly making a mess of it!
