Hi,

At the next station, the train will become virtually empty.

At the next station, most passengers will get off the train.

I saw a train with no passengers. Maybe it was going out of service, for maintenance.

Best wishes, Clive

Thanks a lot Clive.

So you mean in anyway "empty train" cannot be used.

Also, in the last sentence, I don't want to mean it's going out of service. I want to tell that the train is going for a service.
I mean a service need to be provided to the train like "cleaning the train", etc. For that purpose, the train is moving towards a shed.

Usually, we have lots of trains during peak hours, but at night, the trains are reduced, and we could see from station that some trains are moving with no passengers without light, towards the side of the shed.
I say it as, "The train is going for a service and it will not halt at stations. It's just heading to the shed".
Hi Gary,

So you mean in anyway "empty train" cannot be used. I wouldn't say it's wrong, but it's awkward. It's also unclear as to whether the train is a passenger train or a freight train.

If a passenger train stops carrying passengers, even for such brief things like cleaning, it is said to be going 'out of service'. Then, when it starts doing its job again, it 'comes back into service'.

It's going out of service.
