The underlying question is that the railway needs to provide the most efficient and cost effective service for its users and regardless of who owns it there needs to be operating performance measures in place which are tracked and monitored

@97QR7BLfrom Maine  answered…4wks

Yes, but businesses should be more regulated when it comes to price and quality of the trains.

If it's cost effective and is price capped, with low fees, then yes
