Following a fire on a Cross Country train at Brockenhurst, all lines have now reopened.  Train services running through this station may be cancelled, delayed or revised. Disruption is expected until 16:00 26/11.

What we're doing about it

We have been informed that there was a fire on a Cross Country train in the Brockenhurst area. 
Emergency services attended and have dealt with the incident.  During this time no trains were able to run through Brockenhurst as the power to the line had to be switched off to allow emergency services access to the railway, resulting in a queue of trains in the area.  Power has been restored but there may be residual delays and alteration to services

Replacement buses are available running between Southampton Central and Bournemouth.
For further information or onward travel advice please speak to a member of staff or use a station help point.
We are very sorry for any delay that this may cause to your journey.
