    Is there a train going to London?

    Is there a train going to London?

    Is there a train to go to London?

    Do you feel any difference between them and do you use them differently?

    Thank you so much as usual for your time and help.

    Re: Is there a train going to London?

    I would say "that goes" if I wanted general information. I would say "going" if I meant immediately or very soon.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    ...and I'd never say 'Is there a train to go to London?'
