I found the terrain extremely challenging - climbing over fallen trees/roots in the middle of the night. I'd trained off-road, but some of this was really hard, for a city girl like me, anyway.
The signage was brilliant, however - with glowsticks everywhere at night time, and loads where there were difficult hazards to get around.
My son did the last 5k with me, no problems ... even when it went onto the race course at the end.
Re: train stations - at one point the route actually went through one, although it wasn't far from the end by that point, so you'd probably want to keep going!
