How good are our railways? My interview with ITV’s ‘Tonight’ programme

JUST retuned from York, where I enjoyed doing an interview for ITV’s ‘Tonight’ programme on the state of Britain’s railways. It was carried out at the wonderful National Railway Museum by the distinguished journalist Adam Shaw (left in the picture). We shot the breeze on various subjects – subsidies, fares, lateness, sustainability and HS2. But the big item was the new Great British Railways organisation, which takes over next year and will will see the railways once again controlled by a single public body, ending the notorious franchise system. Will it work? It remains to be seen. Watch the programme, which is due to be screened next month…
