Derailed: How to Fix Britain's Broken Railways
Why don't trains run on time? Why are fares so expensive? Why are there so many strikes?
Few would disagree that Britain's railways are broken, and have been for a long time.
This insightful new book calls for a radical rethink of how we view the railways, and explains the problems we face and how to fix them. Haines-Doran argues that the railways should be seen as a social good and an indispensable feature of the national economy. With passengers and railway workers holding governments to account, we could then move past the incessant debates on whether our railways are an unavoidably loss-making business failure. An alternative vision is both possible and affordable, enabling the railways to play an instrumental role in decreasing social inequalities, strengthening the economy and supporting a transition to a sustainable future.
