    It means "Everybody, change trains."
    The train doesn't go any further, so all passengers ('All') need to get off that train, and get onto a different one ('change').

    "All passengers must leave the train. if this is not your final destination, then change to another train."

    Why? Is it your homework?

    Re: All change

    No, I know the rules! Just want to make sure if it's a kind of expression or not?

    We have explained what it means. It is, if you like, a fixed expression. The only way we can really give you another example is to change the place names:

    'Goodge Street . The bus terminates here/End of the line. All change!'

    Thanks for your post, but they seem to be different. I'd searched the aforementioned phrase once in a bilingual dictionary and it has given the phrase 'get off' as the equivalent...as the other precious friends answered.
    but what I need was to read it in another original post or article to see if it's a fixed expression or not?
    -actually dear Five cleared the clouds to some extent-

    Bye the way, that was really my pleasure receiving your post.
