In the recent past, railways have often been presented, and have often been accepted by the public, as an industry inevitably in decline. While newer and faster motor cars and aircraft have appeared in endless succession, and the motorway and airline systems have developed, railways seemed to have made few technical advances, and, with the system neglected and starved of capital for so long it was not suprising that their image was a poor one. The success of the inter-city train shows that railways can provide profitable services of a high standard. They cannot maintain that image and make the needed improvements in other services unless they have financial backing from government transport departments. This informed, objective and revealing study proves the point.
