Crookwell is quite remote and is the end of the line so the train engine must change ends to make the return trip. This takes some time and Victor becomes agitated and constantly checks the time. Lily is quite relaxed and waits patiently. After all this is the start of a new life for her and she is in no rush. She is actually quite nervous and excited at the same time and is totally focused on boarding the train and thus does not notice Victor watching her intently.
