Bring Back British Rail

Another Busy Year...

It's been another busy year for our volunteer-run campaign for publicly-owned public transport.

In April, our legal action forced the Department for Transport into taking our East Coast mainline back under public control as LNER. Our lawyers continue to monitor the situation to see that Virgin and Stagecoach are properly penalised for their failings.

In May, to prepare for the GDPR we launched our Privacy Policy. Please have a read over and if youd like to remove your details from this list, please send an email to:

Public ownership continues to present itself as the commonsense solution to continuing problems on our railways. In September, after the Office of Rail & Road found that 'systemic failings' were to blame for the disastrous introduction of new timetables, we were invited to take part in a live debate on BBC Radio 2s Jeremy Vine show.

Local Campaigns

We continue to support local groups fighting back against different private train operators all over the country through own 'franchises' initiative. Please support:

Norfolk for the Nationalisation of Rail fighting Abellio Greater Anglia
Association of British Commuters fighting Govia on Thameslink, Southern and Great Northern
Northern Resist taking on Northern Rail

Better Buses

To deliver a fully-integrated network, which serves all corners of our country, it's clear we need all our public transport back under public ownership and control. In 2018, we've been supporting local campaigns around the UK taking on the private bus companies. If you're in Glasgow, Manchester or Bristol, please join:
