Rail commuters face rising fares, delays and overcrowding, but HS2 won't run until 2040. Right now, asks Liam Halligan, how do we fix our trains?

Despite rising fares, millions of rail commuters suffer daily from delays and overcrowding. The Government wants to spend billions on new infrastructure, particularly in the north of England with HS2, but the new high-speed supertrain won't arrive until 2040. In the meantime, Liam Halligan asks how the rail network can be fixed.
