Summary British Rail was a success. It successfully carried millions of commuters to and from their jobs every day, organized its trunk route services to yield a profit under the brand name "Inter-City," and pioneered world-beating research and technological development through its own research center and engineering subsidiary. It transformed the railway system of Britain from a post-World War II state of collapse into a modern, technologically advanced railway. It did all this despite being starved of cash and being subjected to the whims of ever fickle politicians. British Rail: A Passenger’s Journey is the story of how all that was achieved, seen from a passenger’s perspective.
