This TUC Summary Analysis is based on research by Transport for Quality of Life for the TUC/rail unions’ Action for Rail campaign.

Over the next five years 11 rail franchises will come up for renewal: Northern, Transpennine, Greater Anglia, West Coast, London Midland, East Midlands, South Eastern, Wales and the Borders, Great Western, South Western and Cross Country.

This analysis considers in turn the different types of savings from running these franchises under a single publicly owned railway company.
