I have an old electric train that's been stuck for quite a while. During upgrading I upgraded the electric rail station to maglev while a train was in the depot. However, the train was never "stopped" in the depot. I switched the station back to electric -- but the train is still stuck in a netherland between the depot and the station. It won't go to the station, and it won't go back into the depot either. Here's a screen shot to give you an idea of how it looks.

I have no idea how to delete it. It loses me a decent sum each year. What can I do?

  • try removing that depot and putting down some tracks, see if that train is willing to go on the tracks? Also, check to see if it really is a electric station you put down, not just a regular station piece.

  • It won't let me remove the depot, says a train is in the way. It's an electric station but when I try to convert to make sure it says "no suitable track".

Build another depot somewhere and connect it with that track, build the cheapest train you can find, manage to crash it with the other train. In a while both trains will disappear.

Cons are that you'll instantly lose reputation in your station, but as time passes, you'll get it back to normal.

  • the problem is it looks like he can't put a depot on the other side, at least not easily due to that station on the hill.
