The Railways Act in practice

by Paul Fawcett

Privatisation of British Rail converted an integrated state railway into nearly 80 independent companies. This reorganisation, and the subsequent contractual relationships between the track authority, train operators and other players is governed by the Railways Act 1993. This 68 page A5 booklet provides a Section by Section description of the Act in plain English, with the practical effects of the legislation clarified using real-life examples. Author Paul Fawcett is currently Visiting Lecturer in Transport at the University of Huddersfield and a member of the North West Rail Users Consultative Committee.
