A level crossing at Frost Lane in Hythe was put out of action by today's storm.
People living near the crossing said a lightning strike disrupted the power supply but Network Rail said flooding was to blame.
The lights and emergency phone were knocked out and the barriers came down as a safety precaution.
A Network Rail spokesman said engineers were on the scene but might have to wait until the floods subsided before they could repair the fault.
However, a nearby resident said the barriers were already up again.
The single track line, which serves Fawley oil refinery, is used by only one or two trains a day.
Redbridge Lane, Southampton, which was badly affected by the flooding, will be closed at its junction with Lower Brownhill Road until January 11 for repair work to be carried out.
Titchfield is still suffering fromo flooding today, although not as bad as it was yesterday.

Meanwhile, Gosport can expect its next high tide at 3.58pm.
Of course, it is not just on the roads where the wet weather is causing problems.
