THERE'S A TRAIN WHERE THERE PROBABLY ISN'T SUPPOSED TO!!!
Sorry for the broken caps, but in all seriousness, I'm on Route Kanal right now, and I'm at the part in the level where you go into a train tunnel and there's a bunch of Combine shooting at you, and there's a f-ing train blocking the direction I need to go, and if I go in front of the train, I die! WHAT THE HELL!? Is this just some kind of glitch, or am I just flat-out stuck? Someone help!

If i am correct, you hear the train horn go off aswell, as you approach the tunnel, you need to use turbo at the right moment and as you leave the tunnel take the sharp left, and yes you should just miss the train marginaly, as thats whats supposed to happen.

Crouch and hug the right side wall while passing the train. It works.

I had this prob. go back where you jump on the train to get to the other side and wait until the moving train comes to a complete stop before you cross. Prob. solved !

You're thinking of a different area entirely. Route Kanal is waaaay before any of this. OP is describing a recent glitch where the combine train gets stuck and prevents the player from crossing the tracks and jumping down into the drainage ditch where - spoiler alert - you meet a resistance member and get healed by a vortigaunt.

I ran into this problem too, but all I did was reload my last quick save and played through it again and it worked fine after that.

Yep, had the exact same issue. Never seen it before and I have over 100 hours in Half-Life 2. Must have been some recent update that broke it or something. Going to try reloading from an earlier save.

This bug is already extensively discussed here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/220/discussions/0/846960628420982619/

A possible safe and non-cheating solution using a barrel: http://i57.tinypic.com/w1b8yw.jpg

You can see if the problem occurs early: http://i62.tinypic.com/14sena.jpg
If this happens, type the console command ent_fire looping_traincar2 StartForward (does not require sv_cheats) to make the train move again. Do not forget not to get run over. :)

Also, the bug can be reported at GitHub[github.com], although others have already done so 6 months ago.

i just park the car right by the train on the left side of the tracks and wait for the train to pass

*i wouldnt be surprised if this segment of the game is broken thanks to Community Updates.* when i first downloaded and played HL2 back in Aug 2013, ALL movement was slow and Halo-like, and the AUX power increased/decreased half as fast as it normally should. the part early on when youre chased by the Combine through the hotel was IMPOSSIBLE because i was moving too slow and couldnt do anything about it

then it got another update in Sept that same year, and movement was twice as fast as before- most likely what it SHOULDVE been and probably was back in 2004. Valve shouldnt allow dumbasses like the Steam Community ruin a game for everyone else
