Rail travel at highest peacetime level since 1928

Train travel is at its highest peacetime level since the 1920s, according to the Association of Train Operating Companies (Atoc).

The number of train journeys in Great Britain reached 1.3bn in 2010, a figure not seen since 1928.

Atoc said it was down to a mix of good service, attractive pricing and the rising cost of motoring.
