Maybe after Stalingrad? When the possibility of the defeat of the Soviets is gone and so in turn the possibility of the Axis powers turning their attention West again is gone. In the context of agricultural reconstruction for example, it is being argued from about 1942 onwards that post war Britain will not be able to compete with cheaper North and South American imports and will have to therefore British agriculture will have to do x,y,z, and then how to do it. (Others within the debate see the Soviets as dominating and so therefore a different set of problems and approaches have to be taken). Now, I wonder if there is ever a clear articulation of or debate about future post war loco policy by any of the companies. @S.A.C. Martin are there any discussions during the war about what to do in the short, medium and long term after the war within the L.N.E.R?
