Stuck in Chapter 3
Alright so I just started playing Half-Life 2 and seem to be stuck.
I got past the trains and jumped over the fence and all that, but then I came to an area where I have to jump down a ledge onto a long railway with a shield wall at either side. The only problem is, I looked this up on youtube and there's nothing there preventing you from simply running across to the other side... Except in my game, there's a long train that I can't go around. Whenever I try to go near the front of the non-moving train, I instantly die. If I jump down the ledge in front of the train I'm fine, but then I can't go past it on the other side.

You can see the exact location at 3:28 here:

or at 2:44 here:

I have a long train there and I can't go around it or over it or under it... What's the deal?

Well I tried it again a few times and for some reason I could eventually get past. Is this a bug or something?

Yes, it's a bug. You could have restarted that chapter from the menu and the train wouldn't have stopped there.

hm, I don't know why this happens to users, you are not the first one complaining about this bug. Maybe you have missed update or something? I've played through HL2 quite few times and never had this problem. (or problem whatsoever)
