    The train arrived would work better.

    See above. Remember to capitalise the first letter of every new sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: is it true?

    Your thread title asks "Is it true?" We can't tell whether the sentence is true or not because we don't know which train it's talking about.

    You probably meant to ask "Is this sentence correct?"

    Re: The train has arrived ten minutes ago

    GoesStation's suggestion of "Is this sentence correct?" is indeed the grammatically correct question. However, thread titles should include some or all of the words you are querying. I have changed your thread title for you this time.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
