Which one is correct?

Which would be the correct preposition to use for this sentence:
"Aurélie is on the train to London."

Aurélie est dans le train à London.

Aurélie est dans le train pour London.

This question relates to:
French lesson "Using 'à' (to/in) and 'de' (from/of) with cities (prepositions)"

Aurélie est dans le train pour Londres. -- Aurélie is on the train to London.

I am not entirely sure if you can say à Londres as well and have it mean the same thing. But I am positive you can say pour Londres in this context.

I think you would go to catch the train "pour Londres" but not when you were on one.
