The Newtonian Ant-Man problem!

Suppose somebody achieves the ability to become incredibly dense, or at least more than usual, by using the great space between the atoms of his body. Now this person, (regardless of whether it's possible or not let's assume it is just for the sake of the problem) is hitted by a train both in his dense and normal variations, in the dense one he has the volume of an ant and in the other one of a middle-age man. When does he gain a greater acceleration DUE TO THE TRAIN, who applies the same force in both cases? Assume they're rigid bodies meaning there's no force lost to the body being deformed, and ignore air resistance as you focus only on the force the train applies.
