It's not "they" that need to sort out public transport/rail freight,
it's us. We demand our goods next day, at the cheapest cost and this
cannot be done using rail. We need to change our expectations of
an instant lifestyle. If our mates car is off the road for some
reason we need to offer to help out (that includes employers too),
if their washing machine is on the blink we need to offer
assistance. We need to mix industrial/retail development with
residential (and be prepared to accept invonvenience as a result)
to avoid commuting to work. And so on........
But it ain't going to happen, until we're forced to, not by "them",
but by us realising we can't go on as we are.
