So looks like my local rail franchise may be nationalised by default because they are so bad at running it that they literally can't make money off a gifted monopoly.

@MrControll so in the UK when the rail system was sold off to private business, it was carved up into regions.
These regions are leased out as long term contracts to private companies as a franchise.
