Graeme Dowie, Beith
Cheaper train tickets.
Edward Luigi, Portsmouth
Give us back some of our family jewels.
Kevin White, Haverfordwest
Bring back British Rail, a transport system for the people not the rich.
Paul Sheppard, London
Southwest Trains are crooks.
Mia Brar, Slough
Fare prices are far too high (in contrast with Europe) and FGW services are either always delayed or cancelled. What happens with the public subsidy? We have had enough.
Patrick O’Brien, Slough
Worst value train service in the developed world.
Bill Walker, Lye
It’s about time we shut down this bunch of crooks.
Rick Salter, Penrith
As a regular rail user I know that the previous set-up was better. Bring back BR and put service ahead of profit.
Barry Woodcock, Kettering
I am old enough to remember the good old days of BR when we all knew what the fares were without going through different web sites and companies.
David Miles, Kent
Our railways are obviously not working as they are. The government should sort it out, but it’s unlikely as it’s such a gutless entity.
Madeleine Howell, Bath
Privatising the railways was the most stupid political decision after Beeching’s Axe. It’s time to do something about it.
Christine King, York
Take it back to British Rail.
Rob Vickery, Brighton
I use the Brighton mainline daily for my commute. First Capital Connect are by far the worst and latest trains I’ve ever been on in England.
Ron Chalack, Sheffield
Stop the thieving speculators.
Zoe Mercer, London
Wouldn’t it be better if profits went back into the service and any excess goes back into public coffers?
Tim Brown, Leeds
Enough of high priced and shoddy services for the traveller.
Frank Stephen, Preston
I’ve been a railway engineer for the past 24 years. Bring back BR. At least it was run by engineers not bean counters.
Patrick Hilley, Keighley
Great idea, about time.
Charlie Sheahan, Stevenage
Bring back British Rail.
Mark Ross, Mansfield
It was once ours. Profiteers should not get richer by setting extortionate fares and providing a disgraceful service.
Brian Bushell, Porthmadog
The present system is a financial disgrace.
Michael Letwin, Brooklyn NY
Privatisation is not progress.
Julie Boston, Bristol
Good to see action.
Susan Tresidder, Liverpool
Private ‘good’ public ‘bad’ is an outworn doctrine with little evidence to support it.
Chris Yong, St Albans
Railways for the benefit of people and the country, not for private profit.
Alan Rimmer, Fleetwood
Rip-off Britain. See it by rail, if only you could afford to.
They should never have been de-nationalised. It was nationalised because it didn’t work as a mish-mash of companies.
David Elford Johnson, Telford
Yes, take it all back, but don’t spoil it by outlandish claims when we do.
David Potter, Stevenage
The franchised, privatised railway we have today is a disgrace. Why wasn’t British Rail subsidised to the tune that todays private railways are?
Trevor Larsen, Kingston upon Hull
One of many bad decisions by Mrs Thatcher and followers. They basically sold off the family silver to their friends and backers at rock bottom prices. Only their friends benefited.
