This original Judge 1892 cartoon comes from American, now updated to illustrate our present day bankrupt British Rail.
I have highlighted the past failings of under investment, the employment of private firms like Stagecoach and Virgin, company’s
interested in profit’s only. With Governments forced to pick-up any losses, just to keep the services running. Our railways are nearly 200 years old, most of the rail tract is almost unchanged.
Our motorways require many improvements to roads and carbon free vehicles. The same for our railways, as cars are electrified, so too our trains.
British Rail-track should plan to double the number of lines, raise the height and width of its bridges. The trains and coaches
will be double-decker, cleaner, faster and a place where your ticket demands a seat with no standing allowed. I know this is wishful thinking, lets unite with Joe Public and show a John Bull’s spirit.
