Unable to access the train station in Splatoon 3

If you’re unable to access the train station even after purchasing the DLC, you may need to update your game in order for the DLC to be added to the game. To do this, go back to the Nintendo Switch’s main menu and go to Splatoon 3. Hit the + button to open up the options and go down to Software Update. Select via the Internet and your game should update to the latest version. If you’re still unable to access the DLC, you’ll need to redownload it from the eShop since it’s possible that the download was interrupted at some point and couldn’t be completed.

To re-download DLC on your Nintendo Switch, launch the Nintendo eShop and search for the Splatoon 3 Expansion Pack. Go to the individual piece of DLC you’re trying to download. On its page, you should see that it’s been purchased, and from there, you should have the ability to download it.
