Everyone has their favourite mode of transport right? No? Oh, well I do and it is the train! Some people think it is weird that I enjoy travelling on tracks, but for some reason I do. Don’t worry this is not going to be a love letter to my dear choo choo-ing and chug chug-ing transportation machines. Trains are political too.
From ownership, to cargo, to projects like HS2 and Crossrail that cost billions of pounds whilst northern cities remain barely connected to each other but just really well connected to London. Trains have always been political and with rising fares, multiple ego projects, and continued inequality between the South-East of England and the rest of the UK, it is time we start really having a conversation about our rail network.
