最終電車で眠ってしまい、自分の駅で降り損ねました。隣の駅から歩いて家に帰らなければなりませんでした。

「寝過ごす」を調べるとoversleptという単語が出てきやすいですが、こちらは約束の時間より遅く起きた、朝寝坊や昼寝をしすぎた場合に使われます。自分の駅やバス停を降り損ねたのは missed my stopという表現の方が一般的です。そもそも電車で眠るという安全なことができるのは海外ではレアケースなのだと思います…

walk back home で「歩いて家に帰る」という表現になります。

  • I took a nap on the train while going home and missed my usual stop, resulting in me having to alight at the next train station and walk home from there.

  • I unexpectedly fell asleep on the train while returning home from work, resulting in me having to get off at the next train station and walk home two kilometers away from there.

If you 'take a nap' as stated in the first statement, it means that you sleep for a short period of time. 'Taking a nap' usually happens during the day either voluntarily or involuntarily because of tiredness. 'Taking a nap' involuntarily means that you 'unexpectedly fall asleep'. It means that you did not plan to sleep but it just happened. If you are on a train or a bus, you are bound to miss your stop unsless someone wakes you up which rarely happens. The result is that you miss your usual stop and have to 'alight' at the next station or stop. The verb to 'alight' used in the first statement means to 'disembark' or 'get off' a train, bus, or airplane.
So, you may say:
I took a nap on the train while going home and missed my usual stop, resulting in me having to alight at the next train station and walk home from there.
or
I unexpectedly fell asleep on the train while returning home from work, resulting in me having to get off at the next train station and walk home two kilometers away from there.

  • I fell asleep on the train and missed my stop so I had to walk home from the next station.

  • I caught the last train but missed my stop. I got off at the next station and walked home from there.

I fell asleep on the train and missed my stop so I had to walk home from the next station. - You "fall asleep" unexpectedly or involuntarily due to exhaustion. You can also say, "I dozed off" or "I nodded off" on the train.

I got off at the next station and walked home from there. - You can "get off" at a stop or "exit" or "alight" the train/bus or stop.

  • I was on the last train of the day, fell asleep, missed my stop, and had to walk home.

This is probably the easiest way to phrase what happened to you. By using lots of commas to separate each part of the story, you can shorten your explanation to just one sentence.

  • I was going back home on the last train of the day but I fell asleep and I missed my stop, luckily I woke up before the next stop, so I got off there and walked home.

Example:

When I was on the way home from work on the last train of the day, I accidentally fell asleep and missed my stop, so I had to get off at the next stop and walk home from there! That's why it took me such a long time to get home!

  • I had to walk further than usual to get home because I dozed off on the final train of the day and didn't get off until I was one station further than my typical stop.

In order to sum up the situation, starting with a brief statement of the end result (walking further than usual) is a good way to lead to what the cause was. Dozing off is a good expression to use for indicating that one fell asleep unintentionally.

  • I fell asleep on the train, got off one stop late - and had to walk home from there

  • I dropped off on the train, got off the train at the station after my stop and had to walk home

You were going home on the final train of the day. But you fell asleep and missed your stop. So you walked home from the next station (one station from your home). You wish to explain that. In that case, one of the above suggestions should be fine.

  • It was the last train of the day, but i fell asleep and unfortunately missed my stop. I had to get off at the next station and walk.

  • I was so tired and fell asleep on the last train of the day, so I had to walk home from the next station.

  • I couldnt keep my eyes open on the last train of the day which resulted in me having to walk home from the next station.

When explaining a slightly long story, you can shorten it down by using commas.

Get off - means exit the train, had to leave.

It was the last train of the day, but i fell asleep and unfortunately missed my stop. I had to get off at the next station and walk.

You could use this sentence above to explain the following situation.

  • "I fell asleep and missed my stop on the last train. I had to walk back home from the next station"

  • "When I was on the train I fell asleep, and I woke up at the next stop. I had to walk home from the next station"

If you was on your way home on the final train of the day, and you fell asleep and missed your stop. This made you have to walk home from the next station, you could express this by saying either of these statements: "I fell asleep and missed my stop on the last train. I had to walk back home from the next station" or "When I was on the train I fell asleep, and I woke up at the next stop. I had to walk home from the next station".

  • I fell asleep on the last train and had to walk back home from the next station.

  • I dozed off on the last train and had to walk back home from the next station.

  • I missed my stop on the last train and had to walk back home from the next station.

The first two examples given are exactly the same in structure and words with the key difference being between the two verbs, "to fall asleep," and, "to doze off," which can be used interchangeably. The last example doesn't explain why you, "missed the stop," but still provides all the information as the first two.
