British rail needs to adapt

Prof. Len Shackleton appears on GB News and BBC news
Speaking to GB News, Len said:
“The big problem is that the railways are losing money hand over fist. This year, it’ll probably be £9bn that we’re subsidising them by, and of course about £6bn-£7bn on infrastructure which we continue to pay out.
“The fare revenue is only about 2/3rd of what it was before COVID and in that kind of situation, reform, change has got to be on the agenda and the unions just won’t accept this.”
