Snow-covered commuters anger at Surbiton station overcrowding
Passengers have hit out at South West Trains because of overcrowding at Surbiton station.
The heavy snowfall prompted a flurry of angry tweets as SW Trains began running their special snow timetable on services from London Waterloo to Woking, including Surbiton.
Joseph Saddington tweeted: "200+ on surbiton platform trying to get to work. Do we not pay enough?!?!"
Callum Stott, 24, from Long Ditton, said: “I was waiting between 30-40 minutes. It is a busy station anyway, but all the trains coming in were already full.
“It took me five attempts before I got on the train.”
Chelsey Byrne tweeted: "how many ppl can u fit in a train? Lots of ppl tryin 2 get on @ Surbiton then we stop extra stops - some ppl will get hurt !"
A spokesman from South West Trains-Network Rail Alliance said: "We are continuing to run the majority of our services although not as many as on a normal day.
"As a result, it is likely that some trains and stations may be busier than normal."
Mr Stott added: “With train companies constantly increasing train prices, you would expect more for your money.”
