Without fair ticket prices the railways will continue to see a long, painful decline

Yesterday, a one-way rush-hour ticket from Bristol to London would have cost £115. The latest annual fares rise of 3.8 per cent raises that, I calculate, by £4.40. The Department for Transport (DfT) insists that it could have been worse.
