Following a preliminary hearing at the city crown court, they had their case adjourned until July 11.
A fourth defendant, Leon Hine, 19, of Tadburn Green, Romsey, admitted affray and endangering the safety of passengers by running across the live track.
Hine had his sentence adjourned until August 8 pending probation and psychiatric reports. He and Leigh were further remanded in custody but Mellor and Sherred-Ball had bail extended.
The quartet were charged following a fight on the service that had arrived at the station from Romsey, which resulted in the driver and a station worker being injured.
