Experimental Build 103023
I tried to search for a similar issue, but I couldn't find one. I was traveling in reverse at +100 kmph when I reached the end of the track. Exited the train and noticed it looking like the image below. It still functions; I can enter the engine and load the freight car.

Same thing happened to me. In my case the speed was quite low - unoccupied train drifted into end of track upon reloading. (Train consisted of locomotive on each end and 5 freight cars - I think all were partly or completely loaded - with only the lead locomotive and first car compacted.) I was able to dismantle the locomotive and rebuild it where it belonged.

Yeah, I actually had the same thing happen after this report, and I forgot to come back to update. Same train in my case, just a single locomotive and freight car (my typical new factory transport). But yeah, I left it sitting on the track stopped, and then I came back to find it merged like this.

Thanks for the report, I've seen some compacting in the past but not this much, I'll write it down for future train improvements and bug fixes.

I tried to reproduce this, but it didn't happen the second time. I know two things were different:
1. The freight car was partially loaded the first time.
2. I think I was going faster the first time as I had started a bit further uphill on my track.

I will try again the next time I play.
