This chapter focuses on the reorganization of the British Railways Board to make way for privatization. Topics discussed include the new railway structure and the management of the restructuring process. It is shown that the period 1992-4 was marked by disequilibrium and frenetic activity. Despite the Board's opposition to the government's chosen model for railway privatization, a group of key managers entered a period marked by extreme hard work with the aim of complying with imposed and tight deadlines.
