TUC policy officer Matt Dykes said that the country was made a "great deal of promises" at the time of rail privatisation.
Speaking to Daybreak he said: "What we're finding is on average, trains are older, there's overcrowding, we're paying the highest the fares in Europe."
He added: "The most important point, I think, is that the whole industry still relies on billions of pounds of taxpayers subsidy, much if which ends up being passed onto the share holders of the train operating companies, rather than being invested into the service."
