Worried about husband

@dorsetpolice up to 100 people abandoned on a train between New Milton and Bournemouth, no hearing, lighting, food or water. No one is helping them. Very worried abt my husband on the train.

No connection due to ice

Really not happy now, stuck on the train near New Milton on way to Bournemouth at 0324 in the morning having left Cardiff at 1630 last night, train in front broke down, then this one has spent nearly 5 hours trying to get power from a frozen track, no connection due to ice.

No water, no food.

We are actually stranded. No hotels, no movement apparently we aren’t moving all night. Now the next train has broken in front and back after moving another off. :( we are in for the night. :(. No water, no food. The longer we stay the icer it gets and other trains can’t move. We need to tweet the news to get someone to do something. This crazy. Please, can we ask people to tweet the broadcasters. This is not good it’s cold and dark :(

Singing and trying to keep happy

Nicky Marcelin-Horne told Metro.co.uk:

"There was about 20 of us in one carriage and then others on the other side. We were the happy side. Singing and trying to keep happy. They were such a good group of people."

Don’t travel

"The ice on the ground is so dangerous so please be careful. Seriously don’t travel", Nicki warned.

Leaving

One passenger share video of leaving the train at Bournemouth which left them stranded for up to 16 hours

Free bottle of water

Phillip Brown was given a free bottle of water when he eventually arrived at Bournemouth station after 14 hours on the train
