Ha ha ha. Such hysteria! It's a bug. Insofar as I can tell, there have been other bugs before this. Nevertheless, this one works in your favor. So just keep playing and don't worry about having passengers for your trains.
If anything, you should hope it takes a year or more to have it fixed.
Meanwhile at the Frostbite Falls station, there are 18,5 Bn (mostly American) passengers at the station. The concessions have run out of food and drink. We're calling in a second and a third planet to handle the overflow.
Please send paper towels.
Over and out.
