Public ownership of our railways would save us billions every year. We pay for our railway, water and energy - it's time for us to own them! Share this brilliant myth busting film from our friends at We Own It and support our Bring Back British Rail and Power For The People campaigns in the run up to the General Election on 8th June

A follow up to yesterday's post defending British Rail's record of investment. In 1988 they opened Thameslink, a brand new railway linking north and south London. Don't believe apologists for rail privatisation, who tell you a publicly-owned railway can't invest for our shared future. SHARE this post to refute their lies.

In spite of what our critics may say, we are a forward-looking campaign: the new BR will by definition, 30 years and more later, not be the old BR. We want to see a world class Railway, more like SNCF than SouthernFail. However this doesn't and won't stop us from defending BR. People who don't know their facts praise the 'investment' privatisation has brought. This case is heavily over-stated....

We've been fighting for the public ownership of our railways since 2009. Today our friends at We Own It publish their manifesto saying YES it's possible, YES it's affordable and YES it's a popular policy. Bring Back British Rail!

One of the main reasons our campaign was created was to keep alive the memory of our publicly-owned railway. British Rail, which hasn't operated a train since 1997, is BACK in the public conscience, in the media and in conversations across Britain. You can bet we'll be making sure it stays there. Share this post so it's on the lips of your friends too.

Well days like this are why we exist. After eight years of relentless campaigning, Rail Renationalisation looks set to be included in the election manifesto of the official opposition. It remains overwhelmingly popular with voters, including a majority of Conservatives. Today might well only be the beginning of the end - but it is definitely the end of the beginning. Stick with us.

Yesterday we were tweeted by a naysaying pessimist: ''give up, it will take years before you get there''. It will take time. But then causes where right are on your side always do: slavery wasn't abolished in a day, nor were votes for women achieved overnight. We're not going anywhere.

Only the Treasury could make the sinking of £50 billion (plus) of public money into HS2, and letting France's state-owned rail company SNCF make a return from it, sound like a good idea. It was the same useless Treasury that designed and approved rail privatisation in the first place. SHARE this post and spread the word!

Hardly a day goes by when the team here at the campaign isn't thinking about supporters' interests, which includes still fighting to reveal the scandalous process of privatisation (rather than its consequences) over 1994-7. On Friday, the campaign met for supper with a major city investor, Crispin Odey, who was one of the original investors in Railtrack. He started by telling us that 'rail...

It is simply excellent to see a damning over-view of Britain's failed rail privatisation in today's New York Times ([ Nytimes.com Link ] - the message is going global. We especially like this comment from a US resident and some-time visitor to Britain. Read, laugh... and weep.

'Visiting GB, I was astounded to see the state of their trains in comparison to the train services available on the...

18 years after The Scottish Parliament was devolved power over Scotland's Transport in 1999, is it finally preparing to address the destruction wreaked by Thatcher's privatisation of our buses in 1986? Like the privatised buses themselves: better late than never!

Our friends at the Association of British Commuters are making progress with their landmark court case against the Department for Transport over the crisis with Southern Fail. Now Transport ForAll are joining the fight; submitting evidence to show how Southern Railway's axing of train staff is in breach of the 2010 Equalities Act. Outrageous. Let's Bring Back British Rail & have a railway run...

One of the aims of the Bring Back British Rail & Power For The People campaigns is to inspire young people and ensure that the history of our once proudly publicly-owned services and utilities is not forgotten. Check out this great article by one of our young supporters. 19 year old Alex Docherty (aka Glesgadelic) interviewed campaign founder Ellie Harrison to get to grips with the absurdities...
