I don’t understand that when Network Rail do repair work, they have to compensate private train operating companies. If it was state owned, think of the saving.
East Coast Trains is a shining example of public sector rail being both profitable and efficient.
The sooner we can have a nationalised rail service the better. End this ridiculous muddle with fares and stop feeding the shareholders with our money.
Time to end the farce that has become the privatised rail service.
Bring it back and let’s do away with all the bureaucracy.

Has the government's decarbonisation policy hit fever point?
Privatizing has buggered up the electricity industry, the gas industry, the water industry and the waste disposal industry too. Some things should be considered a service and run to provide just that at an economic cost not a way of milking the end users.
