    The train lurched

    Please would you correct the mistakes in my sentences. I wanted to see if I can use the verbs "lurch, rattle and the others in this kind of sentenced.

    1. After a long delay, the train lurched and rattled away.
    2. From the distance, the truck looked like a beetle, slowly crawling along the steep, dusty road.
    3. The tourists gazed with awe at the young boys who jumped without fear from the tall, old bridge.

    Re: The train lurched

    They are all natural to me. In 2, I prefer "a distance..." over "the distance....".
