British Rail: a privatization of railways.

I've never been overseas. I'd really like to go, I just haven't had the money. Sometimes I check out trips and fantasize about traveling-- doesn't everyone? I'd really like to check out England.
So, I started looking up train tickets and train railways and came across the British rail which was only in operation under a State agency from the 40s to the late 90s. It was privatized in the 90s and that was that. I never knew that railways could be traded into private sectors. You learn something new every day! I really dig their logo, though!
