Britain’s Privatised Railways Are the Worst in Europe


They were sold-off by Mrs Thatcher’s Conservative Government in 1997 in order to make huge profits for its friends and subsequent foreign investors.

  • Deutsche Bahn AG is the state-owned company that operates and owns the principal railway network in Germany carrying over 2 billion passengers over 80 billion km per annum and delivering freight approx. 80 billion km.
  • NCF (Société nationale des chemins de fer français; National society of French railways or French National Railway Corporation) is France’s national  state-owned railway company.
  • Nederlandse Spoorwegen is Holland’s state-owned railway network operator.

The Governments of Germany, France and Holland own and operate their national railway systems for the absolute benefit of all their citizens.

The Conservative Government of Britain operates the national railway system for the benefit of its private shareholders, instead.

The Labour Party wishes to re-nationalise the railway network operating system in Britain in order to bring it back into the 21st century. To achieve this we need a Labour Government headed by a charismatic leader of integrity to return the national rail system into public ownership.

That leader is Jeremy Corbyn. The time is now!
