Difference between disembark and detrain
- go ashore
The passengers disembarked from the bus.
He stayed in the shadows while the scant dozen passengers disembarked from the wooden-hulled steam-powered passenger ferry Virginia V, just in from Seattle via the Colvos Passage.
Navy commandoes slid down to the vessel one by one, yet then the unexpected occurred: The passengers that awaited them on the deck pulled out bats, clubs, and slingshots with glass marbles, assaulting each soldier as he disembarked.
- leave a train
We did manage to board this time, and detrained at the next station out.
After some of the passengers detrained, the special continued to Belvidere to turn on the wye, and Museum visitors were invited to make the short round trip to Belvidere and back.
This passenger like me had been in his car and had detrained here.
