The passenger added – At midnight, the train was said to be coming to pick us up from here. That’s why we all have to empty this train. A passenger told us this information and the train staff did not give us any information.

Authorities apologized

We got off the train via a ladder and boarded another train. The train also departed 30 minutes later. But the train did not take us to the final destination and dropped us off at Manchester Victoria Station. We got there late at 1.27pm. After that we ended the journey in a taxi.

Railway officials later apologized for the incident. The train lost its power due to a malfunction in the overhead power supply and could not recover due to remote location.
