BBBR is a new a-political pressure group seeking the re-integration and re-nationalization of the UK rail network. Only recently founded, we are very serious about getting the message out there and intend for this to become ever more intense the closer to the election we get.

BUT we need enthusiastic activists to join us - to sign the No. 10 petition (see link from the Bring Back British Rail fan page), to request stickers to stick where-ever you can and most important of all to join an email distribution list through which we will be able to organize regional teams whose job it will be to get out to the stations and promote the message.

Check out the website at; and email us to get stuck in!

Good point but, to be honest, I'd put my efforts into getting decent railways in an independent Wales.

Must say I agree with Anon, 'though the main point is well made.

I see Ffos Las racecourse is attracting good crowds from Ireland. Maybe Oakwood does the same? This is the kind of travel we need to foster, and vice versa.

By the way, does anybody know the proper name for the sea channel between Penfro and Ireland? I absolutely refuse to call it 'St George's Channel'!

Yes I agree with you both.
St George's Channel could be renamed St David's Channel - makes a lot more sense.....
