Hello,

I am not able to get the metro system to spawn trains in any city (I have restarted multiple cities with same issue). I set up a simple two-station above-ground route with fully powered, watered, connected stations, I have routes defined, people in the stations on the platforms, no trains. No broken connections, no missing track, nothing. What gives?

Are you using the Metro Overhaul mod? If so, metros don't spawn spontaneously, you have to put down a depot and connect it to your lines.

If you're not using that mod, can you post some screenshots of your game? That would help immensely.

I wouldn't necessarily call it "using" but I do have Metro Overhaul. I am not able to find a metro depot other than the stations available including the train/metro combo station.

I don't see it in the menu anywhere. Any tips for where this building is selectable?
It's under the metro tab as another poster mentioned, but may be waaay over to the right. Make sure to scroll all the way to the end to see it.

You should disable all mods and see if that helps. If it does, then slowly add the mods back in.

In that connection I would rather recommend to try and start the game with these two commands:

-noWorkshop
-disableMods

Then we can exclude if the issue is vanilla or mods.
