Action urged for fairer train fares

RAIL passengers in the UK have been urged to take action in the fight for fairer train fares. The Campaign for Better Transport (CBT), angered at the 5.8% fare rise for mainline season ticket holders, asked passengers to sign petitions, write to the Government and protest. Supported by Monty Python star Michael Palin, the CBT campaign started on Tuesday at Charing Cross station in London.
