RMT Press Office:
General Secretary Mick Cash said;
"This is an open admission by Britain's private train companies and the Government that they have been ripping off the travelling public for over two decades.
"If we want a fair deal on fares then that means keeping ticket offices open, keeping staff on the stations and platforms and nationalising our railways into one publicly owned body with one pricing structure.
"The proposals from the train companies today are just pure window dressing from the same old racketeers who have been plundering our railways since privatisation."
