Letter: Train rage

The Independent Culture
Sir: It is simply untrue to say (leading article, 24 June) that rival train companies operating on the same lines won't co-operate on schedules and ticketing. Organising that co-operation is exactly the kind of role the Association of Train Operating Companies fulfils: we already do this for ticketing, for railcards, for the National Rail Enquiry Service and many other forms of co-operation.

All the train companies are committed to a better integrated public transport system, and understand that this will only be achieved by co-operation, not by fomenting childish rivalries.
