  • We did NOT get all these problems before Thatcher privatised the Railways ! I remember when a maintenance man used to walk the lines with a sledge hammer over his shoulder ! RE NATIONALISE THE RAILWAYS, they should be a a valuable part of OUR structured TRANSPORT SYSTEM !, like in most European countries !
