  • Good morning.

  • I’ve found from this time-table that there are several trains to Novosibirsk daily.

  • Yes, quite so.

  • Is there a sleeper on the overnight train which leaves at 11.45 p.m.?

  • Yes, the train has sleeping accommodation.

  • What time does the train get to Novosibirsk?

  • It’s due to arrive in Novosibirsk at 5.10 a.m. It usually runs on time.

  • Is there a dining car attached to this train?

  • Yes, of course.

  • Thank you for the information...

At the booking-office

  • I’d like two tickets to Moscow for tomorrow.

  • Which train?

  • The 23.15 fast train.

  • In a sleeper?

  • Yes, of course. And in a non-smoker, please.

  • Single or return?

  • Two return tickets, please.

  • Just a minute. Let me see. Yes, I can give you two upper berths in one compartment.

  • Can I have one lower berth?

  • No. There are only upper berths.

  • Good morning, John! Where are you going?

  • Good morning, Mike! I’m going to the railway station.

  • Are you going anywhere?

  • Yes. I’m going to the Crimea for holidays.

  • Don’t you want to go there by train? It is so far. And it will take you a lot of time to get there by train.

  • Never mind. I like to travel by train.

  • And why don’t you want to go by plane?

  • It is very expensive for me to travel by plane. Besides, travelling by train you can see many picturesque places of the country you are travelling through.

  • But you will have to spend a lot of time with unknown people in one compartment.

  • You know, I like to make acquaintance with people. And I think I’ll have a good time speaking to them about different things.

  • Really? Then it’ll be better for you to go to the Crimea by train. Have a comfortable journey!

  • Thank you. Bye-bye!
