It depends on which past tense you want.


Past simple:

The train reached its destination.

The sentence given is in Present continuous, so, perhaps the best answer is:
Past continuous:

The train was reaching its destination.

We could also use
Past perfect:

The train had reached its destination.

Past perfect continuous:

The train had been reaching its destination.

I'm not sure where the sentence:

The train has reached its destination

fits into this system.
