    Hi,

    You could simply ask "Which is the last station?"

    Your first sentence sounds as if you are expecting Arnie to appear on the scene.

    If you want to use 'terminate', as some transport officials do, it needs to be active, not passive: "Where will/does the train terminate?" This sounds rather stuffy.

    Ohhhh, I am loving the idea of Ernie from Sesame Street playing the Terminator! Made my evening.

    Re: How can I say ?

    Most of your thread titles have been equally meaningless, cnshah.

    A good one for this thread would have been
    Where the train will be terminated?
