I hope someone can help me. English is not my first language and I am not sure about this. In this advert, given that trains are countable, why do they use "there's" instead of "there are"

I'm pretty sure they're wrong. It should be there are, there're is a correct abbreviation as well afaik

Ooh good spot Dragon. My vote would go There are....

Oh, OK then. It had been bugging me every day during my commute :-)
