"At time t, v = 0; at time t', v > 0; there is absolutely no time between t and t'."
how about t" where t" < t' and v" < v ?

I don't think you are seeing what I'm trying to show; t'' and v'' only exist in your imagination. In order to say "the train is moving" you must necessarily measure two different values for v and two different values for t. It doesn't matter how big or small they are, there will always be a time t when v = 0 and a time t' when v > 0. Emphasis on "always"!

What does that imply? Quite simply, that the supposed continuity of time only exists in your imagination and can't possibly be detected by any physical device.

There's more to it, but you can't see it until you understand why time is not continuous by definition.
