Post subject:  London 2012 from the Rail commuters of London perspective

rail for election 2012
A question to the London Mayor 2012 candidates:

What is more important limited fare increases in line with inflation (and not teh introduction of a Living London Minimum wage) and sustained expansion of London Overground, Croxley Rail Link and The Bakerloo and Northern and Victoria lines and Crossrail Line 2 (Chelsea Hackney)

or reducing fares and curtailing investment in new infrastructure and instead investing in continued maintainence so that whats already there can do the job reliably?

I prefer the former as housing in South London with housing redevelopment already proposed may reduce teh number of estates and tower blocks so that teh Balham, Sutton and Streatham inner london loop services could be linked into Overground instead making more space for main line services such as the 24 tph Bedford - Brighton 12 car Thameslink services and possbily a second Brighton main line or service to Boris Island and Crossrail to run to Reading. Fior teh zone 1-6 services the extra new class 378s would keep Bombardier in the midlands / Derbyshire in work (and also for an electrified GOspel Oak - Barking line, woth the 372s being cascaded to Chiltern Inner London and Birmingham suburban (or DB's Welsh Railway franchise).
