Letter: Trains in winter

Sir: With regard to your report "Rail firm fined for crowded trains" (3 March), I should like to point out that during the period of temporary rolling-stock shortages caused by severe weather in January, Connex South Eastern managed to maintain train services on all routes during the worst winter in Kent for many years.

In this period, which saw many major roads closed and ferry sailings halted, our punctuality and reliability were significantly better than in previous winters.
