Scenario : A , having just arrived from abroad, meets up with B in a cafe. A has a train to catch later in the evening.
A saying to B," The only difficulty was to know where to put the luggages till my train left."
Question 1 - Is the past tense 'left' used to show tense sequence ( ie keeping the whole sentence in one tense ) ?
If it is, then can we also use 'leave' to show a 'present situation' ( ie The only difficulty was to know where to put the luggages till my train leaves this evening)?
Question 2 - If both sentences are right, which is the 'better' one ?
