The Age of the Train" was a television advertising campaign in the United Kingdom created by British Rail in the late-1970s to promote its InterCity rail travel service. The adverts were presented by since-disgraced DJ and BBC presenter Jimmy Savile and featured the then-new InterCity 125 high-speed train. Although a state-owned corporation at the time, British Rail was under pressure to operate on a more commercial basis.

What’s more, British Rail (BR) often turned in gargantuan losses to be met by the taxpayer. Taxpayers were still shelling out, but the trains were at last going in the right direction. The result was long-term, depressing decline, with stand-up comics the main beneficiaries of BR’s chaotic inefficient ways. The Labour Party’s piecemeal re-nationalisation proposal, taking over the franchises as they expire, risks returning to a golden age of British Rail that never was. Fares might well be cut; but poorer taxpayers who rarely get on a train would then have to subsidise often well-heeled commuters and others who use the services all the time.
