Concrete them over.
Britain's railways will get £14m a day for the next five years in a bid to improve train services.
Network Rail (NR), the state-backed operator, will invest £26bn to boost train punctuality from the current 80% to 90% before 2009.
I believe there is less than 10,000 miles of railway track in the UK - figures seem to vary from 9000 to 11,000. Get the calculator out and start doing the sums. Coachs on bus/taxiways deliver many more people per hour with less pollution, more flexibilty and probably just as safely. Trains suit a certain control and command mindset, not a modern society based on freedom, they belong to centuary before last! Let's just keep a few historic museum rides and get rid of the rest.
