I've just received, privately, the message below. As I couldn't for the life of me think why it should not be posted, publicly, on here, I've done it instead. Here is the text: "Most of us knew that this would happen. There have been many times I have walked down to the bridge and watched them working with 15 men just standing around of their phones.

Network Rail may not be a commercial business but wasn't it the case that Rail Track, its precursor, was? And from what I remember RailTrack wasn't a glowing example of the benefits of privatisation.
