    Re: Part of railway to be nationalized

    Hey has anyone mentioned how this could possibly be connected to the Private-Public ventures set up by Thatcher? I didn't read the thread, but you guys are talking about the UK rail systems, right?

    Edit: Wait a second, I'm confused, what rail systems are you talking about where are they located?

    Okay, I was confused because it looked like there were Americans talking in this thread talking about American stuff.

    ^^Yeah, there is that too, it's kind of confusing.

    The only time someone uses a truck for a long haul (~1100 mile sor more) is that they need the freight sooner rather than later. or they need it refrigerated.. Otherwise, they use rail.
    Under that ~1100 miles, truck is cheaper. Every time.

    And the main thing here is that Europe invested in rail, where as the US invested in.. nothing.
    Again - you dont know all that much about the transportation industry in the US.
