Nationalising the railways will be good for Scarborough and Whitby

Pros
Cons
  • Despite ongoing price rises averaging 3.8% in 2018, travel is still beset by overcrowding and delays

  • Companies are making a profit but delivering a poor service, we need reinvestment

  • Due to price rises, it's now cheaper to drive than to travel by train which can't be good for the environment, particularly pollution levels

  • Despite the cost of car travel rising, rail prices have risen faster, meaning that an increasing number can't afford to travel at all

  • Everybody moaned about British Rail, who wants to go back to that?
