A publicly owned railway would be able to integrate services and be more answerable to passengers. It works in France and Italy.
All utilities should be nationalised and run for the benefit of the public, not shareholders, with profits being ploughed back into the company to modernise.
About time it was put back into the public’s interest.
It couldn’t be worse than the present ridiculously complex arrangement and other countries seem to do it well.
I work for Network Rail. Bring back a nationalised company that has the country, employees and passengers at heart, not profit.
