While talking about a bus or a train, what's the correct way to refer to his leaving the main train station? Is there a specific term like departure for airplane.

I thought about "When the train goes / moves to Cardiff" something else? But I'm not sure if it's natural.

Pulls away is usually used for trains. To add more context, one might say:

The train pulls away from the station.

In the context above this doesn't really fit though. The following may suffice:

When the train travels to Cardiff.

Or

When the train leaves for Cardiff.

It depends on the context you're using it in though

You could say

When the train leaves for Cardiff

to leave for means:

  1. To set out for some destination.
    What time do you leave for the airport in the morning?
    They're leaving for New York next week, so I'm having a going-away party for them this Saturday.

(source: The Free Dictionary - I've left out the sentence which is erroneously duplicated from definition 3)
