The Rising Cost of Railfares

The Government’s review of the railways will lead to even fewer services, less staff and higher fares although fares are so high at this moment in time that commuters are going to find it extremely difficult to come up with even more money!!

I believe privatisation of the railways was one of the worst decisions ever made by a Government.  Furthermore if the clock could be turned back to the 1960s before Dr. Beeching took his axe to the railways then I believe that any British Government, of whatever political colour, would jump at the chance of having the sort of coordinated and extensive rail network throughout the country that existed at that time rather than having to spend vast sums of money on building new lines.
