We demonstrate that the dark soliton trains in optical fibers with a zero of the group-velocity dispersion can generate broad spectral distribution (continuum) associated with the resonant dispersive radiation emitted by solitons. This radiation is either enhanced or suppressed by the Raman scattering depending on the sign of the third-order dispersion.
