YOU mention two problems that could have mutual solutions for each other. The front-page suggestion that SNCF could take over some BR services in order to improve them ('French in secret talks to take over best BR lines') could be solved by the page-three problem of not enough aerospace work in Hertfordshire ('Where have all the good times gone?'). The money from the defence budget and many of the workers could be used to build the new trains we need that the French already have.
