who gets the money from your train ticket?

It's that time of year when train (and bus) companies put up their prices and prepare themselves for the media onslaught that is sure to follow.

So ever wondered where all the money goes from your train ticket?

The graphic below, supplied by Association of Train Operating Companies, shows how your pound is split between all the interested parties.

I think the average traveller will be surprised how much money Network Rail takes from the pot, the costs associated with running a train company and the net profit they actually make.


Assuming these are average figures for the industry, it would be interesting to see how the figures differ for individual operators.

Figures on a postcard please.
