Trains

This will include passenger and freight. Track and rolling stock.

We should re-nationalise the railway as a single organisation comprising track and rolling stock, signals and stations and running and building the trains. It is recognised as a mistake to have broken up British Rail in the 1990s but nobody has the courage to suggest this be reversed.

The capacity of the system for goods and for passengers and for urban rapid transit should be increased.

The entire¬†system¬†should be electrified with the electricity being sensibly generated in a way that doesn’t wreck the planet.

Get prices right down so people and goods companies will use it.

Make the fare structure simple and increase capacity at peak times so that the system can cope and so we don’t have to charge more for the times when most people (for perfectly reasonable reasons) want to travel.
