  1. Well, not privatization, according to this interesting BBC article, but reform. I don't know the first thing about Indian politics, was Modi elected on a reform platform? Anyway, it seems a report was written, which did in fact recommend privatization, but the PM has promised not to do that. Apparently its recommendation is after the British model of separate owners for track and train, rather than the Japanese style of regional organization. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-32200190
  2. Interesting article on the feasibility of renationalizing Britain's railways. Apparently, this sort of happened with National Express, which collapsed, as the article says, in 2009. Services were then run by Directly Operated Railways, which was state-owned. This reverted to private ownership again last November. Just wondering what our British forum members and other informed parties think :). http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-31621300
  3. Yikes, here are a few YouTube-worthy clips. If you let each one play to the end, it automatically goes on to another. The one with the red automobile cutting in front of the one-car DMU, and the one with the cyclist at Waterbeach, are a bit shocking. http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-31100457
  4. probably some of the lightest, most pleasant fare on the Beeb lately: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-30793868
  5. Interesting article, photos of various emotions: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-29816152

    rail reform in the UK

    Interesting BBC article, "Labour should reform the railways, prospective MPs say" http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-27273672 (cool yard, someone should model it. Anyone know where this is?) I don't know much about it, but it's always surprised me that various operational aspects are in different hands, such as track and signaling versus rolling stock. Who does that actual scheduling? I think Yoshiyuki Kasai (current chairman of JR Central, and involved in the planning of privatization of JNR during its last days) wrote in his book that they discussed dividing different functions amongst various organizations, but decided against it.
