Breaching and his assistant made sure that the two railway stations where they lived remained open hence East Grinstead and Uckfield being the terminus of a couple of commuter lines...

The Uckfield through Lewes closure was a shocker because it closed another viable direct route through to Brighton which is still much needed to this very day...as the road network was never able to pick up the slack...

Railway network plan revised

Initially, Harold Wilson's Labour government continued with the policy of closing uneconomic lines, although it came under increasing pressure from backbenchers. In 1966, a White Paper on Transport Policy identified economic utility, rather than commercial viability, as the major objective of railway policy. This resulted in a revised railway network plan with 3,000 miles of additional track surviving Beecham's scheme.

Following a policy review in 1967, the Transport Act of 1968 made provision for major capital reconstruction on the railways and deficit relief. Certain routes that fulfilled an important function but were not financially viable were subsidised. The carriage of freight by road and rail was to integrate under the National Freight Corporation.

Beeching had a connection with a construction firm that, purely coincidentally, was looking to place a few more contracts on it's books and building big shiny motorways for the government was, literally, just what the doctor ordered.

As has been said, it was Labour who in their drive to get rid of cosy "Titfield Thunderbolt" branch lines up and down the country whatever the consequences, ended up shitting on their very own union members by removing their source of local employment.

Not all of them could move to Dagenham and re-train as door-hangers on Ford Cortinas.

Didn't Beeching occur cos they wanted to get more people to use the roads? They succeeded a little too much, I feel.

Re: c'mon own up - which old boy did this?
There were two Beeching reports, one commissioned by the Tories in 1963 and one by Labour in 1965.

Labour approved the closures recommended.

Just saying...

Beeching was from the Isle of Sheppey, another reason to hate him I guess for some !

Today I have learned about Beeching.

Beeching was, it seems, a self-serving cunt.
