    Exclamation train

    Hello,

    1. The train leaves Plymouth at 11.30am.
    2. Train will leave Plymouth at 11.30am.

    Are they share the same meaning?


    Thank You

    Thank You
    Yes, they do.
    For schedules, like bus/train/ship, etc., you can use the simple present tense instead of the future.
