For trains that aren't in revenue service at the time that are passing by, instead of "no passengers" just say "Next Train, Please."

 

Maybe a train should have a sign saying where it's NOT going, like on the front it'd say "NOT K" and on the side saying, "Somewhere Other Than Forest Hills!":p

On the PCCs in San Francisco, they have a reading on the destination sign that says "No where in particular".
