"Many consultees pointed out that the role of rail differed in different parts of the country. Also that the purpose of rail was to transport people and goods and not to move trains. Customers should come before operators. There were conflicting views on whether rail should be mainly market driven and commercial or fulfil a wider social agenda. The majority favoured the latter approach...
There was much concern from non-industry stakeholders, some passenger Train Operating Companies and lobby groups that long distance services did not squeeze off socially necessary or commuter services and that existing users were protected. In responding to the question on which routes should be included in the Long Distance Statement most mentioned the intercity mainlines but there were varying views on which other services should be included. Many felt the LDS should provide a framework and not a "blueprint"."
