LETTER : Train-spotting

From Mr Kirk Martin

Sir: I see from the Business pages of the Independent today that Railtrack is to be sold off for between one and a half and two billion pounds. The other day, I was reading, also in the Independent, that the Thomas the Tank Engine empire was worth some two and a half billion pounds. There must be a moral somewhere in this figures.

Yours sincerely,

Kirk Martin
