It's official.

What was left of British Rail - British Railways Board Residuary - has officially been scrapped.
Various government depts / quangos including the highways agency are now responsible for BRs business.

20 years after the tories went on the attack to kill BR, they've finally succeeded.
Well done Mr Cameron. I hope you're proud. It only took two conservative PMs do do the job and the second one still failed to completely scrap them back in March!
BR once one of our greatest achievements, gone.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
