Rail Privatisation: The Practice – An Analysis of Seven Case Studies

By J.D. Shires, J.M. Preston, C.A. Nash and M. Wardman


After a brief description of the proposals for rail privatisation in Great Britain, this paper contrasts these with the proposals and experience in other countries around the world. \ud \ud The proposals and experience in other countries contain some elements of the British proposals, however, the 'open access' element that features strongly in the British proposals has never been experienced on any significant scale elsewhere. \ud \ud In conclusion, experience elsewhere may shed light on the likely outcome of some aspects of the British proposals, but other aspects such as 'open access' and vertical separation are still unknowns
