Journeys are too expensive. And why do I have to pay to use the toilet? This is a violation of my human rights I’m certain.
Nathan Day, Redhill
Simple. Enough is enough.
William Power, Royston
It has got to the stage when it is cheaper to fly than catch a train Jaw dropping prices and having to search loads of internet sites just to find a reasonable fare.
Nicolas Richardson, Cardiff
Privatisation has been a complete waste of time, has not benefited anyone who uses it. It’s turned out worse value for consumers as prices hike and services get worse.
Craig Gardiner, London
Bring back British Rail.
Les White, Stafford
Let’s have a public service that everyone can use and not just for the rich. Let’s go back to simple pricing and timetables that are realistic and get rid of the middleman.
Joan Briggs, North Shields
East Coast has run a great service. Why not allow them to continue and others join them?
Simon Bell, Torpoint
Privatisation has failed the passengers and serves only the shareholders of the rail companies. Re-nationalised and run efficiently East Coast line shows public success.
Oszeromolago Babalouista, London
I like the BR logo. I want to see it more. I want the conductors back. It will be better organised and cheaper.
Ruth Atkinson-Wilks, Bristol
I just tried to book a day return journey to take my son to London for the day (leaving after 9.30am) in 3 weeks time and the cheapest option was £60. This is shocking.
Ray Laidlaw, North Shields
Economic and reliable rail travel is not a luxury but a requirement for a modern, successful economy. Get rid of the franchises and nationalise the railways.
David Cuthbert, Winscombe
The railways should not have been privatised in the first place. The subsidies are a ludicrous price to pay when there is no ownership by the taxpayer.
Barry Barker, Stoke-on-Trent
Railways for travellers, not for shareholders.
Daniel Grixti, London
I strongly believe that any part of our society that serves the masses and helps our society run efficiently should be non-for-profit and for the people.
Richard Beastall, Nottingham
Bring back BR.
Chris Clarke, Huddersfield
Lets go back to a service for the public not a service for a few shareholders.
John Butler, New Malden
Private good – Public bad. It’s Orwellian.
Kevin Ryan, Birmingham
John Carlisle, Sheffield
Let us undo the great mistake that New Labour would not, when they had a golden opportunity.
Julian Balmford, Aylesbury
Maybe if we achieve this then we can start with the Water Companies?
Sheila Rowhan, London
Put people before profit.
Mark Mayo, London
Public transport for public good rather than private greed.
Paul Gardener, Wallasey
I left BR in 1995 after 18 years service, as I could see bad things happening because the changes that were made after privatisation (Potters Bar, Hatfield.)
Andy Teed, Devon
What the Tories said about privatisation was wrong – better service, lower fares and competition. None of that has happened!
Chris Moon, Bridgwater
No public service should be run for private profit as it can never serve people’s interest.
Maria Dolores Moreno Manzano, London
It is absurd that a public service is in the hands of those whose sole interest is their own profit.
Steve Ince, Pocklington
The country should have a proper public transport system.
Sue Ahrens, Watford
It’s clearly sensible.
Peter Burns, Southampton
The trains are hugely expensive. I can’t afford to go home to Northumberland with my fianc
Sue Stewart, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
When returning from mainland Europe by train, I am always embarrassed by the contrast, the high prices and tattiness of our un-nationalised railways compared to the SNCF.
