There were very few people upon Platform Number Twenty-one of Liverpool Street Station at
a quarter to nine on the evening of April 2 - possibly because the platform in question is one of the most remote and least used in the great terminus.
Next day I left that station at
last, with a caravan of sixty men, for a two-hundred-mile tramp.
I was met at the station at
Lowell by a gentleman intimately connected with the management of the factories there; and gladly putting myself under his guidance, drove off at once to that quarter of the town in which the works, the object of my visit, were situated.
At a big station at
a town the volunteers were again greeted with shouts and singing, again men and women with collecting boxes appeared, and provincial ladies brought bouquets to the volunteers and followed them into the refreshment room; but all this was on a much smaller and feebler scale than in Moscow.
The cab stopped before the railway station at
twenty minutes past eight.
Strategically situated to the north-east of the town, the new TGV station at
Valence is a key element in a regional road and rail transport hub.
