Q: O que significa As for trains, you don't have to hope that they won't skip the stop ?
A: Oh! Ok. It means that you don't have to worry that trains will skip their stops.

I'm not sure how it is in Korea, but in the US, if you ride a bus, there are many places the bus CAN stop, but it won't stop somewhere unless you push a button saying that you want to get off. Trains are different, though. When you ride a train, it stops at every station ("stop") on its route. You don't have to worry about a train missing a stop if you don't press a button.

The sentence is a bit complicated since it's a double negative. You DON'T have to hope that they WON'T skip the stop because they always stop.

Does that help?

Synonyms of "Train" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre The train will be stopping in five minutes e The train will stop in five minutes ?
A: So "will" and "will be" are very similar but they have just a slight difference.

For example,

I will walk home - this means that this is the next thing that you will do.

I will be walking home - sometime in the near future, but not necessarily the very next thing you do.

In this case with the trains, there is no difference because they give you a time frame, five minutes. With my examples, there is a difference because I do not mention when.
