Or was he just the fall guy...?

Did Dr Beeching get it wrong with his railway cuts 50 years ago? (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-21938349)

Some lines are being reinstated, where it is still possible, like a couple going into Cardiff. Although a bypass road has also just been opened on the old track bed of a line in the valleys - so there's arguably still a lot of short-sightedness going on.

Then there's HS2, Crossrail and the electrification of the lines out to Swansea and the valleys.

We should electrify Swansea and the Valleys.
