Greetings from Bring Back British Rail

As the General Election looms, this is a crucial week for our volunteer-run campaign for publicly-owned public transport, founded in 2009.

Both Labour and the Greens have pledged to bring railways and buses back into public ownership in their 2019 manifestos. This General Election on 12 December could mark the change of policy we need to create the fully-integrated, reliable and affordable public transport network which can re-connect all corners of our county and tackle the climate emergency. So please make sure you get out and vote on Thursday!

We're celebrating 10 years of campaigning with a #GE2019 Merch Special Offer. If you don't already have one of our popular Rail Card Wallets, Enamel Badges or Embroidered Patches, now's your chance to get the set for yourself or a friend. All proceeds support campaign materials and activities. Please share on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Orders must be placed by end Tuesday 17 December 2019 to receive in time for Christmas.

Taking on the TOCs

In 2019, we've been using our national network to continue supporting local groups fighting back against different private train operating companies (TOCs) all over the country through own 'franchises' initiative. Please support:

Norfolk for the Nationalisation of Rail fighting Abellio Greater Anglia (aka Nederlandse Spoorwegen, owned by the Dutch government)
Association of British Commuters fighting Govia on Thameslink, Southern & Great Northern (part-owned by Keolis, owned by the French government)
Northern Resist taking on Northern (aka Arriva, aka Deutsche Bahn, owned by the German government)
Public Ownership of Scotland's Railway taking on ScotRail (aka Abellio, aka Nederlandse Spoorwegen, owned by the Dutch government)
