Li toys with buying British trains

Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-shing might put his company in the running to buy British rail company Porterbrook, the owner of a third of Britain’s trains, the Sunday Times reported Sunday.

Li’s listed Cheung Kong Infrastructure Holdings is believed to be considering putting in an offer for the rolling stock company, it said.

Porterbrook was put up for sale last month and is expected to be valued at about £2.5 billion (US$4.24 billion), the report said.
