In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
There are no electric freight rail services in the South West,though this goes to show the madness in the UK energy market at the moment.
I guess the high electric costs will filter down to ticket prices on electric passenger trains directly ?

After telling the franchise last month they will be stripped of it, Southeastern's train services have been taken over by the government today, Why can't they admit that like the utilities in private hands, The companies are only interested in getting their shareholders a decent dividend and not serving the public or interested in their "Customers"
