No need to rubbish the past


Simon Murray's reference to the British Railways era as a time of stagnation (NCE 23 March) is unfair to the many men and women who worked very hard to wring money out of reluctant governments and spend it wisely. It is good that Railtrack is so upbeat about the future, but it shouldn't fall into the trap of making the future look bright by rubbishing the past.
