You know that proverbial phrase about life, lemons and lemonades? Well these stranded train passengers just took that saying to a whole new level!
As the reports tell us, a bunch of passengers have been stuck on a train in the UK due to Storm Emma. Among them were Nicky Marcelin-Horne, who hails from Bournemouth, and her work colleagues Ralph Barrett and Steven Davies. They left London Waterloo to Poole but the train had to stop because of heavy snow – and they ended up in the carriage for over 10 hours.
First off, yes, it was a serious problem.
As Nicky posted on social media:
“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.”
However, instead of complaining, the group made friends with the other passengers.
Sure, it’s a terrible situation to be in but these guys were determined to stay positive about it instead. They began making friends with everyone and, from the looks of it, they all had a great time there, despite the hassle.
A Broadcast headhunter for Caspian One, Nicky told Metro:
“There was about 20 of us in one carriage and then others in the other side. We were the happy side. Singing and trying to keep happy. They were such a good group of people.”
The train driver likewise came out and joined the fun. At one point, it even went dark.
As Nicky described:
“We tried to keep positive. When it went dark, Steve started to sing happy birthday to keep us all happy.
“But it started getting colder when the heaters went down. We were all concerned. It was scary. One girl who was travelling to Weymouth was really cold and worried so we all gave her clothes and kept her positive.”
