SIR,—My article describing an infelicitous journey trom Aberdeen to London

has brought me a long ktter from the Chief Commercial Manager of British Railways, Scottish Region. He has clearly investigated. with great thoroughness the matters which I criticised, jn two of which he freely admits that British Railways were at fault.

Although his letter is private, I feel that his courteous reply to my strictures well deserves to be brought to the attention of your readers.—Yours
