    be late for the last train

    Suppose we have spent too much time at a bar, and might not be able to catch the last train, then what would you say?
    "Let's hurry up. We might be late for the last train"?

    Re: be late for the last train

    That's fine. You could use others:
    Let's hurry up, or we'll miss the train.

    If you're talking about the very last train on the timetable, that's fine to say so.
