Chris Brettell, Ringwood
We want our railway back. I was a former employee.
Eithne Murphy, Leeds
The whole rail network should be given the opportunity to repeat the success of East Coast Rail.
Marc Collinson, Bangor
Great campaign. Now a serious outline of proposals are required from a think tank.
Joel A Forster Jones, Bournemouth
The railways are an essential service for all, not a source of private profit.
Margaret McFadyen, Norwich
Too right. Fragmentation of the railways to private companies is a total mess. Train travel is more expensive, more stressful and a lot worse than it used to be.
Dean Anderson , Merstham
Cheaper fares in the long run.
Mark Sawbridge, Wolverhampton
That privatised railways receive 3.5 times the subsidy that British Rail did (even taking account of inflation). It is a national disgrace.
Eric Penman, Liverpool
Stop subsidising other people’s profit.
Antony Drawmer, Birmingham
Privatisation equals false competition without choice but plenty of complication for customers.
Sean Ryan, Liverpool
Sort it out.
John Stannard, Sheffield
Let’s stop yet another example of rip-off Britain.
Mick Brady, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
We need the railways to be brought back into the public ownership now.
James Ford, Reading
Unify the network again.
Federico Moscogiuri, Hertford
In recent years we have seen spiralling costs, deteriorating services and vast amounts of public money used to subsidise the rail companies. This experiment has failed.
Steve Anderson, Bristol
Billionaires don’t listen to anyone’s words but their own. Is there any point to this? Derail the City of London if you want social justice.
Neil Pritchard, St. Helens
Northern Rail are the pits. For goodness’ sake, give our railways back to the people of Britain.
Andrew Shore, Nottingham
We need a re-nationalised railway network that offers a consistent, reliable service, value for money for the tax-payer, and a simple, sensible and fair pricing structure.
Tim Brown, Leeds
Enough of high priced and shoddy services for the traveller.
Alex Shearman, Solihull
Fares are too high. The system needs to be run for the public.
Teresa Claxton, Chesterfield
Bring back before it’s too late.
Sonia Santana, Bishop’s Stortford
I support the idea of re-nationalising the railway system.
Tina Comparini, Southampton
20 years of above inflation price hikes and I’m travelling in trains, not properly cleaned, with broken dirty toilets.
Jim Allen, Brighton
First Capital Connect London to Brighton service is dreadful. Old trains, noisy, rattley, uncomfortable, freezing cold or baking hot. It’s a complete rip off.
Dean Williams, Stevenage
I support a unified, nationalised rail network for the UK, run as a public service, not for private shareholder profit.
D H, Newport
It has been an absolute disaster for the travelling public and even worse for the staff. Punctuality, fares and safety have never been so poor.
Paul Bemrose, Brighton
I use the trains every day. I’m sick of greedy private sector companies cheating travellers with constant overpriced and poor services.
U. Monad, London
Bring back British Rail to the people and fine and imprison all those who have stolen taxpayers’ money.
Richenda Herzig, Ely
Our rail system is embarrassing, especially when compared to other state-owned European systems.
Norman Sullivan, Nottingham
Yes please, we can run it better and cheaper with 1st class service.
Hugo Rogers, Newbury
Yes, but we need more lines re-opened (and not HS2) to create more capacity.
