Train bosses have announced plans to ensurethere is no repeat of the chaotic scenes that emergedatLewisham station during the winter's freezing weather.
Southeastern and Network Rail have said the events in March, which ended with a flock of passengers fleeing over tracks and halting other trains, were "unacceptable" and "regrettable".
Theiraction plan follows an independent report into Lewisham train disruption in March, when heavy snow, ice and freezing temperatures meant some trains were stranded near Lewisham station, forcing passengers to climb down onto the tracks.
A series of recommendations have been made for improvements to command and control arrangements, asbosses said industry procedures for stranded trains need revisiting to avoid a similar incident in the future.
A spokesman said: "While railway staff worked hard to get an unprecedented situation under control, the independent investigators identify lessons to be learned in managing disruption and ensuring the wellbeing of passengers.
"In particular, the report provides recommendations in co-ordinating communications between different organisations, and in sharing information more effectively with those on trains."
In a joint statement, David Statham, Managing Director of Southeastern, and John Halsall, Network Rail’s South East Route Managing Director, said: “Winter weather conditions in 2018 were the most challenging we’ve seen in the south east for more than a decade. Unfortunately this led to a very serious incident in Lewisham, and we’re determined to learn from what happened.
