    Relatives pronoun

    Here is some sentences:

    I went to catch the train which departs at five (1)
    I went to cath the train departing at five (2)
    BUT, I have heard they also use like this:
    I went to catch the train (which) departs at five (3)
    It means, they omit the relatives pronouns, but may it seems difference from the sentence (2) above?

    #3 seems ungrammatical to me.
