Timi Horwell, London
Southwest Trains are horrible.
Debbie Reed, Prudhoe
This is extremely important and could also pave the way for a return to all the public services we used to take for granted.
Gurmeet Singh, Leeds
We need fairer fares and more job security for rail workers.
Heather O’Hara, Blackpool
Trains for the people.
John Harrison, Rotherham
Privatisation is not working. This is a public service that should be non profit-making.
Douglas Arnold, Washington
East Coast is making money and they want to sell it off. It may finish up in foreign hands with our money going abroad, We need a joined-up railway system.
Chris Walker, Middlesbrough
It’s about time something was done to stop this profiteering.
James McAlpine, Inverness
The joke is on us and it’s time we said ‘enough is enough’.
Ronald Donnelly, Burgess Hill
Why should train profits go to overseas investors and not recycled into the system?
Sarah Markham, Flitwick
Public services are best. The railways need to be given back to the people who should own them, the people of this country, not those who just want to make money.
Clare Simmonds, Beaconsfield
The service provided by Chiltern is woefully inadequate. Clearly not enough resources are allocated to developing infrastructure.
Radoslaw Lach, London
Privatisation gives the weak quality of service, because it is focused on how to make the greatest profits. In London, public transport is far too expensive.
Nick Dombkowski, Warminster
Re-nationalisation of our railway is the aim and let the people decide how it’s best run, from local to nationwide level.
Anthony Farrell, London
Keep up the good work.
Win Gibson, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Modern infrastructure is vital to economic growth and cannot be left to short term aims of the private sector.
Kevin Madden, Birmingham
It’s time to return all our assets to the people – water, gas, electric too.
Chris Tugwell, Welling
Privatisation of the railways is a sham so that shareholders can make millions. We should re-invest in re-opening closed lines and bring back a real service.
Yasmin Chotai De Lima , Gravesend
I take the train every day. It is inefficient and overpriced.
Sally Millar, Edinburgh
British taxpayers and rail customers pay for rail services – but don’t get the service they need – and private companies and shareholders take the profits. It’s mad.
Mark Kavanagh, Leeds
We need to re-establish fair prices for rail travel. Privatisation has simply enabled business greed to hike prices far beyond what is reasonable at the public’s expense.
Karen Christmas, York
Hopefully, one day we might get back to one kind of National Rail provider, stopping all private investors milking our system.
Vicky Long, London
Yes, National Railways – Dutch/Euro style.
Benjie Moss, Brighton
In the modern world, transport infrastructure is a vital resource and should be run as such.
Peter Marles, Leeds
I’m dismayed and tired of standing.
Steve Burns, Brighton
Cut carbon emissions and subsidise rail travel now.
Sydney Wilmshurst, Caterham
Value for passengers not profit for financiers.
Dave Kavanagh, Woking
Every private railway has demonstrated their total inability to serve the nation. We cannot rely on the profiteering tendencies of private business.
Barry Gibson, Dundee
Return public transport to a service for the public not just a money-making exercise for a few.
A Barton, Bath
I want to be treated as a respected customer. I feel I’m coerced, tricked and ripped off by the train franchise monopolies.
Helga Baggs, Old Buckenham
I do not use railways any more. Why should single fares cost nearly as much as returns?
