Oscar Davis, Ludlow
Arriva Trains Wales has got to be one of the most expensive services in the UK and its service is appalling.
Roger Kay, Crawley
Privatising the railways has failed the passenger and rewarded only the shareholders.
Geoffrey Allen, Cramlington
I wholeheartedly support your campaign to re-nationalise the UK rail network.
Nicholas Ward, Croydon
The country which invented rail travel deserves the best national railway.
Michael Bramley, Skipton
Hopeless franchise process continually adding to ticket prices.
George Talbot, Watford
How will capital be raised and serviced and prices set? Should management consult and respect subsidiarity, socialist emulation and more? How will workers be disciplined?
Colin Thompson, Bury St Edmunds
The carriages need to be cleaner and there should be more of them. Fares should be standardised and the journey and customer experience should be prioritised.
Colin Nicholson, Edinburgh
Privatisation of publicly owned assets is theft.
Peter Collins, London
Rail is a natural monopoly and should be in the hands of the people through democratic government.
Shabir Ahmed, Watford
It always worked better under government control.
Lisa Mundy, Portsmouth
I recently travelled on trains in Europe and China, superior to the UK and run for their people. UK get a grip and nationalise.
Andrew Grant Robertson, Edinburgh
Privatising the railways was a misconceived policy that wasn’t even prosecuted competently. It is disgraceful that driving is cheaper than train fares.
Tola Dabiri, Watford
As soon as possible
Clive Pritchard, Brighton.
Major stole my railway system. l want my trains back.
Jane Moorhead, London
It can’t possibly be any worse.
Peter Woodcock, London
It’s common sense to re-nationalise the railways and use the profits for this country.
Diana Rossborough, London
I’m actually quite alarmed for my personal safety on overcrowded platforms filled with angry would-be passengers. I also fear disease from filthy carriages.
Heather Cartwright, Southwell
Railways should never have been privatised.
Chris Stevens, Robertsbridge
Division of the rail service into smaller providers would always be economically unviable and a waste of resources.
Ivy Pearson, St Albans
More consideration, care and respect for train users. Many of us have no choice but to use the trains. Overly high fare prices and still I have to stand every day.
Aaron M, East Sussex
Ticket prices have ballooned since privatisation, as every player in the rail industry whacks up the profit margins.
Mark Lauri, Reading
All profits should go back into the railway not into private investors’ pockets. Railways should be subsidised and for the people not the wealthy.
Tim Baker, West Bridgford
Enough is enough. As a regular user of trains who experiences the ridiculous pricing, it’s time to get some standardising back to this public service.
Jim Mayes, Blyth
Take our railway out of the hands of greedy and corrupt businessmen and return it to us.
Rob Gray, London
Bring back the love of travel and not the love of money.
Wallace Henning, Folkestone
It’s obvious that this has to happen.
Courtney Williams, Anglesey
I travel on a bus for two to three hours extra to go to university and back as the trains are too expensive. It saves me about £26 per week.
Roger Drion, Durham
All services in the country should only be owned by the British people.
Karen Veitch, Holmes Chapel
I am fed up with overpricing, dirty trains, poor journeys, no choice and trains being cancelled. And they think its acceptable.
Andrew Raine, Oswestry
Yes I agree.
