TRAVELLING BY RAILWAY

 

Mr. Kozlov had an invitation from one of the biggest British firms to visit an exhibition of chemical equipment in Edinburgh.

As Mr. Lipman had promised to send the quotation only in two or
three days Mr. Kozlov decided to take the opportunity of visiting

the exhibition.

So on Wednesday morning Kozlov got up earlier than usual as he had to catch an early morning train to Edinburgh. He packed his suit-case and was about to go to the restaurant when the telephone rang. The secretary of Russian Trade Delegation was phoning Kozlov to tell him that he could get accommodation on the 9 o'clock express to Edinburgh at the booking-office of Liverpool Street Station.1

 

AT THE BOOKING-OFFICE

Kozlov: Good morning. I want a first-class ticket on the 9 o'clock? train to

Edinburgh. Clerk: Would you like a single or a return ticket? Kozlov: Return, please. I think it's more convenient. Clerk; Certainly, it is.2

Kozlov: Shall I have to change?

Clerk: No, you needn't. It's a through train.

Kozlov: What's the fare?

Clerk: 12 pounds and 10 shillings, please.

Kozlov: Would you mind telling me when the express is due in Edinburgh?3

Clerk: Just a minute. I'll check that for you. You are due at 5.30 p.m.

Kozlov: Oh, are we? I thought it would take me more time to get there.

Clerk: This train is the most convenient. It goes faster than any other

train. Kozlov: Thank you.

 

ON THE PLATFORM

Kozlov: Porter, will you see to my luggage, please?4

Porter: Yes, sir. Where are you going to?

Kozlov: I'm going by the 9 o'clock express to Edinburgh.

Porter: Is this your suit-case ?

Kozlov: Yes, it is. It can go to my compartment.

Porter: Very well, sir. Which class?

Kozlov: First.

Porter: This way, please.5

(Kozlov looks at the train at platform 2.)

Kozlov: Isn't this my train ?

Porter: No, sir. Your train is at platform 5. We'll have to hurry or you'll

miss the train. It's leaving in 5 minutes. Kozlov: Oh, is it? Porter: Now, sir. Here is your carriage.6

(They get into the compartment and the porter puts the suit-case on the luggage-rack.) Kozlov: Thank you, porter. Here you are. (He gives a tip to the porter). Porter: Thank you, sir: A pleasant journey to you.7

SEEING A FRIEND OFF

Three men were sitting at a bar near a railway-station. They had asked the railway porter to tell them when the train was due. Some time later the porter came to say that the train was coming in. "Oh," said the men, "we have time for just one more drink." They took another drink and hurried out, but their train had already left.

They went back to the bar. An hour later the second train arrived, and the same thing happened. They missed the train again. Two hours later the porter came and told them that the last train was due in five minutes. Again the men waited for a few minutes to have one more drink and when they came out the train had already started. Two of the men caught the train. But the third man missed the train and walked back to the bar.

"By the way," the barman asked him, when he came in, "what town are your friends going to?"

"I don't know, where they are going to," the man answered. "They just came down to the station to see me off."

a bar бар; to have a drink выпить; the same thing то же самое; to happen слу­чаться; again опять, снова; to start отправляться; a barman бармен

TOO MUCH FOR THEM

Some young men were travelling in a smoking compartment of a railway carriage. Just as the train was about to start the door suddenly opened, and an old woman came into their compartment. The young men wanted to have the compartment for themselves and they said: "This is a smoking carriage." But the woman did not listen to them. She came into their compartment and sat down. They decided to smoke as much as they could and hoped that she would have to leave the carriage soon. There was a lot of smoke in the com­partment and the young men began to feel bad.

In a quarter of an hour to their great surprise the woman took out a pipe and began smoking too.

The young men had to change their compartment very soon.

to start отправляться; for themselves для себя; a pipe трубка
