Server instance still running after server deletion

This sounds impossible so I'm trying to figure out what's going on. I had a nodejs server running discordjs, and made calls to openAi. After turning off the railway instance I noticed the discord bot was still online AND receiving messages and responding. I thought ok maybe some caching or something going on or a lag with the server shutting down. After a few minutes I decided to be safe and just destroy the server. It's been about 30min and the bot is still running. My local computer is off, so no chance for an accidental local instance running. My .env are never sent to GitHub. Some random person running themselves. Is railway keeping the server instantiated?

Railway is an infrastructure platform where you can provision infrastructure, develop with that infrastructure locally, and then deploy to the cloud.

just wanna say that you shouldn't need to remove the bot from railway to work on it, you should have a mock server and test bot account for development purposes, thus never needing to take the main bot offline

Yes agreed, I normally never remove it, I just was testing why it wasn't online. And it never turned off Here's an important tidbit, I actually shut it off because when I made a commit that deployed from GitHub, the bot respond twice, once with the old commit, and then again with the new commit changes. So I thought, huh weird that two instances just ran, so I then shut it off or "removed it" and it still is running with the old commit. Hope that makes sense, thank you guys for looking into this I guess it's just the singularity starting from Railway 🤷‍♂️
