CHRISTIAN Wolmar is mistaken in the "True stories from the Great Railway Disaster" article number 38, "So you want a new station?" (15 October). Neither Thames Trains nor its predecessor, the Thames and Chiltern division of Network SouthEast, has offered to help fund a station for Kidlington.

Six new stations have opened in the Railtrack Great Western Zone this year. One was entirely funded, and the others largely funded, by local authorities. Two more will open next year.
