    Is this sentence okay?

    Hello,
    I would like to know if the following sentence is 100% correct:
    And when your train arrives, I will be waiting for you.

    In part 1 I use arrives because it's a trail and it reminds me of railway schedules where it's common to use Simple Present.
    In part 2 I use will be because I want to connect two future moments.

    Thank you!

    Cheers!

    Yes, it's perfect, assuming that "And ..." follows on from something relevant.

    Yes, of course you're right.
    It would not be my first sentence in a conversation


    Cheers!
