    Re: Alight on station

    We don't "alight on" when talking about getting off trains. We might say "You should alight at the next station". However, it's a little old-fashioned. You are far more likely to hear:

    You should get off at the next station.
    You will have to get off at [name of station].
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
