Pivatisation of the State Rail Netork The Government and other concerned parties (WFF and local shires) are up-in-arms about the consequences of the rental of the rural rail network to Westnet Rail, whose current owner, Babcock and Brown is stating that it will not be maintaining more than 1000 km of rural rail, with consequences on local and state roads and for oil depletion and climate change. Since the only parts of the State rail network still to be privatized is the track itself and the urban rail network and we have seen the disasters of privatization in the UK rail system I find this proposal quite ridiculous.
