UK Railways

"Then come the railways, ripped to pieces so that pretend capitalists – sustained by far bigger subsidies than British Rail ever got – could trouser taxpayers' money for providing a worse service than the one they replaced.

"In a bitter paradox much of the system is now run by foreign (nationalised) railway concerns. And this is a great British invention we gave to the world."

Lots of railway lines - before the Beeching cuts of the 1960s.
