Pavlohrad or Pavlograd (Павлоград)

Train station time is 7:56pm.

Pavlograd (city of Saint "Paul") is a city in eastern Ukraine with a population around 112,000. The rivers of Vovcha, Hnizdka, and Kocherha flow through Pavlograd. There was a significant Jewish community in Pavlohrad prior to 1941. Founding date of its Jewish community is 1780. Pre-Holocaust Jewish population was approx. at 4,000. It was destroyed during Nazi occupation in 1941.

Its not a big city thats for certain.

This is certainly "out in the middle of nowhere" when it comes to city size.  It seems to have hardly 75,000 population, much less 112,000 and while it lacks the big city amenities, it makes up with small town charm, hiking trails and fishing.
