TSSA welcomes public ownership of Crossrail trains

1 March 2013

TSSA leader Manuel Cortes said: "We welcome the fact that Tory ministers recognise that it is cheaper and quicker to have publicly-funded new trains for Crossrail, but why stop there?

"Why don't we just get rid of the privately-run Roscos (rolling stock leasing companies) and build cheaper trains in Britain for the whole network, not just those operated by the mayor of London? By replacing the privateers, we could then start cutting fares."

See the Government announcement of the plans.
