Several days ago, when I was telling my friend my trip to my populous hometown, I said "I had to push my way through the crowd to get to the train". Today, I saw the phrase "to barge through a crowd", so I am wondering if I could say "I had to barge through a crowd to get to the train". Does "barge through" has any connotations that I should be aware of? How would you say the sentence? Thanks.
