Derailed: How to Fix Britain's Broken Railways (Manchester Capitalism) (Paperback)
This insightful new book calls for a radical rethink of how we view the railways and explains the problems we face and how to fix them. Haines-Doran asks: What if the railways were seen as an indispensable feature of the national economy, a social good that needs to be supported?
