A brief history of the British Rail

The British rail was privatised, in stages, between 1994 and 1997. Its logo is a ‘double arrow’ in red and white, with the interlocking arrows representing travel on the double track rail. The symbol is used on the streets of Britain to denote railway stations.

In 2010, the British rail network became the fifth most used in the world, with 1.33 billion journeys.

Here is a list of the top three busiest stations in the UK according to The Guardian. All of the stations mentioned below are owned by Network Rail.

  • Waterloo noted 94,045,510 entries and exits in 2011-12
  • Victoria noted 76,231,290 entries and exits in 2011-12
  • Liverpool street noted 57,106,502 entries and exits in 2011-12

Following the privatisation of the British Rail, all train companies are required to provide the public with a telephone enquiry service. This would enable the members of the public to gather information and details about different trains.

You can choose to travel First class or Standard class. The former has a seating arrangement or 2+1, and the latter has a 2+2 seating pattern. Usually, leisure travellers prefer the standard class, while the First class is used by the business class.
