Re: The Positions of GERUND


I am struggling with gerunds as well.

As you say it sounds ok, but I think it should be followed by the infinitive to be correct:

The train was late to arrive

If you were to remove the adverb 'late' so - the train was arriving - 'was arriving' would clearly be a past continuous verb.
