— We’re at the railway station at last. Look here, Mike, have you already taken the tickets from the booking-office?
— No. Let’s do it immediately. The train is due out, precisely at 12.10.
— When did you manage to buy a railway timetable? That’ll help us to make a changing at Gloucester.
— Shall we hire a porter, George?
— No, I think we can cope with it ourselves. But we are to have the luggage registered.
— Ye, it’ll never do to climb up into a carriage with two huge trunks.
— You know what? We have two lower berths, I’ll finally have a good rest.
— I did not sleep a wink last night either. We are lucky to have two lower ones.
— By the way, what’s the number of our carriage?
— That’s 15. We should go to the very end of the platform.
— All right. I’m not sure from what platform it leaves. Number 3, if I’m not mistaken.
— Let’s make it clear. Over the corner is the information office. (asks) Yes from platform 3.
— (IN THE TRAIN). Does the guard here bring the bedding?
— Yes, I’ll ask him, just be ready with the money. Something about 25 pounds for two passengers.
— We’ll be off in a minute. That’s good the train today runs on schedule. Do you remember we were in Aberdeen last time?
— Oh, certainly, we were behind schedule for 2 hours if I’m not mistaken. Snowfall or something like that?
— Right. And now let’s have a rest. I consulted the timetable. We’ll have to make a changing tomorrow at 5.30 in the morning at Gloucester. And it’s already 11 o’clock.
— Shall we ask the guard to wake us up in the morning?
— No, I think we have no problems with that.
— Ok. So, good night for now.
