I seldom travel by train, but almost once a year by plane.

I almost never travel by train. But I travel by plane up to 3 to 5 times a year from Carcassonne in France to Charleroi in Belgium to see my family. It's very easy. The Carcassonne's airport is only at 40 minutes from our home and it's the same distance from Charleroi's airport to my daughter's home. The flight takes only one hour and a half.

I couldn't understand why the train in items A and B is going to Oxford as stated true in question 3 task 1.
The other question is what does the "calling at Reading, Oxford and Bristol Parkway" means?
Could you help me figure out both questions?

Hello cleitoniida
'calling at Oxford' means that the train will stop in Oxford so that passengers can get on or off the train there. This is why the question 3 is true.
Does that make sense?
All the best

Yes! It's starting making sense. As I got it, 'the calling at' precedes the stopping stations and the Bristol Temple Meadle is the train direction.
Thanks a lot!

I sometimes travel by plane. It's enjoyable and so fast to arrive where you wanted.

I have traveled by plane but I haven't traveled by train,I just use train for moving from palce to another in my city to market, school and to club
