LETTER: Railway in trust

Click to follow
Sir: All of us who support the railways and can afford it should buy shares in Railtrack. If enough of us do, we can make our presence felt at shareholders' meetings and, when a new government arrives in power which is more sympathetic to the railways than the present one, we could then sell our shares back to the government at cost price. What better way of "holding the railways in trust for the nation" than to do it ourselves?
