Rishon L’Tzion HaGaon HaRav Yitzchak Yosef Shlita during his weekly motzei Shabbos shiur explained that despite the chilul Shabbos by Israel Railways, one may travel on the train.
The rav explained “the fifth volume of Shulchan Aruch is the judgement of Gedolei Hador. If Gedolei Hador thought that by levying a fine prohibiting persons from traveling on the railway it would prevent chilul Shabbos, they should. But the Shulchan Aruch I just mentioned does not prohibit traveling on the train”.
