Vancouver's Evergreen Line is not as much an example anymore.
** Lougheed Town Center station of [[StargateCity Vancouver's]] [=SkyTrain=] had a third platform and a series of switching tracks built for the Evergreen line.

***Also on the Blue Line, one will notice that when the tracks curve from Lake Street to Milwaukee Avenue, the tunnel bores continue west, albeit with no track of any kind on them, which were intended for a future subway under Lake Street that never saw the light of day.

* Tampa International Airport is supposed to have six airside terminals; however, Airside D was demolished in the mid-2000s and never rebuilt. Since the airside terminals connect to the main terminal via tram lines, this led to there being an elevated tram line that [[https://maps.google.com/?ll=27.981981,-82.535756&spn=0.006708,0.013078&t=h&z=19 abruptly dead-ends into nothing]].

* The Aerotrain peoplemover at Washington Dulles International Airport was built with future renovations to the airport's terminals in mind. It is proposed that Concourses C and D will be replaced with new concourses, and thus the station for Concourse C on the Aerotrain is located where the future concourse is to be built. However, since the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority has not been able to get the new concourse building off the ground, an underground walkway was built between the Aerotrain station at Concourse C and the existing Concourse C.

** The Diet Coke and Mentos volcano that serves as her base [[spoiler: and where the climax is set]] was also dummied out, though legitimately. It contains an incomplete track and the only access is through a wall. That's why no one looks for her there; as far as they're concerned, since it's not complete, it doesn't exist.

Or rather, it doesn't.
** The Berlin U-Bahn and S-Bahn got subjected to this trope during the Cold War when the city was divided into east and west. Whilst most lines running east-west were siply closed or terminated at the Wall, a few lines connecing parts of West Berlin unavoidably passed through East Berlin. As a result and to prevent defections, public access to stations along these routes were blocked off and both stations and lines removed from East German maps, whilst from the Western POV trains simply did not stop at the now-disused stations. Their dim lighting and the sight of border guards peering out was what first gave rise to the nickname "ghost stations", a full list of which can be found on TheOtherWiki [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghost_station#List_of_all_Berlin_ghost_stations here]].

It essentially fits in with the other subway examples.

* Using the "view source" button on some pages here at ''Wiki/TVTropes'' will reveal commented-out lines in the wiki markup (lines which begin with [=%%=] are comments). At times, these may include examples that were DummiedOut because they didn't meet the Wiki standards (such as {{Zero Content Example}}s), but weren't completely removed in hopes that some troper, someday, would save them.

* Sometimes It's not uncommon for a manufacturer to use stickers are used to hide or correct an error that's made hide/correct erroneous information that has been discovered on a product's packaging when after it's too late for the producers to change the packaging itself. Seeing what content is underneath is as easy as removing the sticker.

** When the Transformers design team discovered that the locking point for the first Transformers Prime Ultra Magnus' gun didn't have enough traction to hold it in hammer mode, the port was made shallower so that it couldn't be used and a new one was put above it.

** The Universe Galvatron toy has a set of joints in its "backpack" that don't contribute to the transformation and serve no real purpose in either mode. When Hasbro was asked about this, they revealed that the joints were leftover from a third, [[http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-toy-discussion/233250-lets-see-some-fan-modes-thread-180.html#post12921120 "walking tank"]] mode that was created by the design team. The design had to be adapted for a lower size class, and the walking tank mode lost priority because it wasn't integral to the character portrayed by the toy.
