Railways are vital infrastructure and need investment throughout the country to benefit all.
Our railways belong to us. They should not be run for profit other than to raise money to improve the service. We gave the railways to the world, now we want ours back.
Fares since privatisation have spiralled out of control and the quality of service on some routes has actually decreased (namely First Group) Look at East Coast. BBBR!
The railways should be available to everyone, and serve every part of the country. They should not be another way for a handful of already rich people to get even richer.
We want our public transport service back. We still pay for it in taxes.

I don't think we did it. I think the fact that there's a general election coming up in the next year did it.
The next question is; since the Government said that they won't put more money into the subsidies, what is the next thing that the Train Operating Companies (TOC's) will try to cut to keep up the dividend payouts?
France, Germany, Japan, all covered in high-speed rail, helping to grow their economies and improve connectivity around their countries. In Britain … one high-speed line to get from London to Birmingham. It's pathetic.
😡 Avanti's contract extended despite terrible track record. Passengers deserve affordable, reliable trains. Privatisation is getting us nowhere. ... See MoreSee Less
We need to demand it from the Labour party as a manifesto pledge because the Tories aren't listening.
Tory Party values.
It's a management contract which means it doesn't matter how bad they are they will still get paid their fee and they will be protected from any loses due to industrial action or even another pandemic ( don't forget the current government likes to remind us all that every household paid £1400 to prop up those naughty striking rail workers)
I wonder how much do we expect from it if it would be nationalised.
Typical Tory reaction rewarding abysmal failure! I expect the CEO to get a knighthood.

I was in the ticket office at Newcastle today at what I would have expected to be a quiet time. There was a queue in front of me and it quickly lengthened behind me.
France will launch a €49 rail pass after the success of the 'Deutschlandticket' UK also tried to copy Germany, but was reduced to capping bus fares at £2. This is due to privatisation of Britain's state-owned British Rail. www.euronews.com/travel/2023/09/08/france-will-launch-a-49-rail-pass-after-the-success-of-the-deu...
