The privatisation of Britain’s railways in the 1990s was largely politically-driven. Very little real evidence was available about the value of privatisation in any of the forms considered, including that actually chosen. The authors, co-editors of the key text Planning Passenger Railways, hope that this book begins the process of understanding the impacts of privatisation. Using the latest data, the creation and function of the ‘new’ railway structure is analysed.
For the first time, an objective estimate is presented of the net impact of privatisation – an impact considered in terms of politics, customer service, safety, the environment and, critically, finance.
