You have the data type for Train_ID in one table as int, but as int unsigned in another. You will need to make the types the same to create the foreign key relationship.

Also, it seems odd that you have Train_ID as a column in the Passenger_Details table. I would think that the relationship between and passenger and a train should be through a booking, unless the passenger is only permitted to ride on a single train in the system.
