I agree. I wrote "On the train, it is forbidden to play the violin" and it was counted wrong!

You can also say, "You should never play the violin on the train" You is considered to be impersonal, meaning that it can be used to represent any person or group of people.

After I was corrected and told that "It is impossible" should be "It is prohibited", I wrote "On the train it is prohibited to play the violin", but it corrects me and says "It's not allowed to play violin in the train" This is one of those times I want to chuck the computer out the window for sheer frustration.

This sentence does not sound right in English. It should be "you are not allowed to play the violin on the train".
