I compiled your map and loaded it in the game:
  • I went into the elevator and pressed the button;
  • the door closed;
  • the elevator along with the door went along the given path;
  • near the glass doors, the elevator stopped;
  • the doors opened and the elevator went on;
  • The elevator stopped at the end of the journey. Glass doors closed.
It is not clear what the problem is, everything works as planned.

@man_simple, that's not the end of the journey.

So, it appears that this is due to the doors closing. When they close, they appear to trigger the multimanager again, disabling the train after one second.

Seems like an usual bug which I've not seen before where a door that targets a multimanager will also fire on close. Not sure if that's a new bug after the 25 year update or not...

In any case, the way to get around this for now would be to have the path_track target the multimanager, and have THAT handle the opening of the doors at 0 seconds.

Also, you didn't ask about this, but a little more advice:
  • Your grates and railings should be using the Solid Render Mode, not Texture. Texture makes them glow in the dark and show glass decals when shot.
  • Try to avoid using the Fit button when texturing. It stretches and squashes textures and can lead to compiling issues further down the line.
