Passengers yearn for the return of British Rail

The privatisation of the rail network has failed and the system is in a "mess'', according to passengers' representatives.
Users of the system look back fondly on the state-owned British Rail which, at the time, was accused of a lack of vision and inability to invest, the report by the Rail Passengers' Council (RPC) said. Passengers wanted the industry to be controlled by one person with a strategic vision of how the railways should develop.
