Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Maintenance : it may seem bleedin' obvious in Italy that you can spend time de-icing your trains on a relatively limited number of nights per year; likewise, it is surely bleedin' obvious in the Netherlands that you can't mobilise staff every night there's snow for such a job, you have to have rolling stock that can cope with the conditions.

i.e. the problem is either that somebody didn't read the specifications, or, perhaps worse, that nobody wrote the specifications. I can't see any excuse for that, but of course it won't be anyone's fault.
