Dialogues in English — Travelling by Train

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.
