Perhaps there are safer regions of the city. We saw Glynda trying to repair damage last season when it showed up in the news so it's definitely not just a Grimm adventure park although one has to wonder how many civilians would be making the journey.
Maybe it's not a train that goes to Vale, maybe it's a train line that runs to a port that goes to Sanus and it's the overall transport line whose journey ends in Vale. So like, buy your ticket to Vale and go Train/Ship/Train or Train/Airship/Train or Train/Ship/Airship?
No, I'm saying that if the "Vale line" included the boats or aircraft you'd need to get to vale, then the Argus line should be called the Atlas line, or that they should have at least shown that the Atlas line was closed.

Given the closest points between Sanus and Anima, it is entirely possible for a train route to have been built traversing the gap. I imagine the difficulties would be similar to those faced in the episode. However, there are ways to minimize that risk. A route that goes underwater a la the Chunnel between the UK and France would minimize the risk, though there are still Grimm in the ocean. What we don't know about that is if they function at deeper depths. It is possible they could even have a tunnel built under the sea floor, which could eliminate the risk of Grimm attack entirely. A bridge built at a high-enough elevation could leave them only exposed to airborne Grimm and that risk would not be particularly greater than that of other over-land routes trains take in Remnant.
one would have to wonder how exactly they would keep the tunnel's clear though... being trapped miles unground fighting with explosives against a grimm with little between the train and the ocean wouldn't be that great a plan.

I mean, the tunnels don't have to be always open. They could have doors.

It wouldn't be like a wall where something could potentially go over it. They just need a door that can't be easily pentrated. Plus, who is to say they wouldn't have that tunnel entrance situated near some defensive post? Surely, they have reason to defend ports of access between the continents. Just have the tunnel go along there and any defense is an extension of the defense for the port.
