The Passengers That Took On the Train Line

Jacques Peretti follows a group of dissatisfied Southeastern rail commuters as they to bid to take over a train franchise and do a better job of running the service.

In 2016, with the contract for Southeastern trains due to expire in six months, a group of dissatisfied but determined passengers come together to try to take a railway franchise into their own hands.

Jacques Peretti follows the group as they set about executing their revolutionary plan. Is their dream far-fetched, or will the Department for Transport, looking for fresh ideas, see this new passenger-run company as a viable option for the franchise?
