ABSTRACT
This article from the Strategic Rail Forum of the Institute of Logistics and Transport reflects on the situation, as of 2001, of the national railways of Great Britain from an independent professional perspective. It is a contribution to the debate about the role of railways in society and the key strategic decisions which face the railway industry, based on an assessment of what the country requires and is willing to finance. This paper considers recreating the vertically integrated railway, in which infrastructure and operations would again be combined into one organization, but rejects it. Incentives reward desirable outcomes and penalize undesirable ones, but they have their limitations and this report gives some examples of how not to do it. The key issue related to integration is to what extent the priorities for service provision should be determined nationally and when they can be sensibly and satisfactorily be left to local decision making.
