I have no idea how to get to the specific sites you want to visit but you can use the website www.capitainetrain.com to check train schedules and prices from Arras to Le Quesnoy. To get from Arras to Arleux-en-Gohelle you'd have to take a train from Arras to Farbus and then I don't know how you get to Alreuxen-Gohelle, which is about 4km from the train station.

Or if you can walk the 4km you can go back to the train station in Farbus.

I have only been to Le Quesnoy from Lille, but from Arras it should be possible to get there from Arras with changes at Douai and Valenciennes. Once there, walk into the middle of town which is surrounded by a more or less complete set of Vauban fortifications. Th memorial to New Zealand troops who liberated the town is more or less on the opposite side of the fortifications from the ntrance to the statio. I suspect that Kiwis are warmly welcomed at the Tourist Office.

Good question Diz. I just asked my wife this question about buses in rural locations and if they'll drop you off on command and she says sometimes the bus driver in a very rural location will make a stop on command but I think you'd have to check with each bus driver before boarding a bus. I imagine flagging down a bus would fall into a similar category of finding out ahead of time.
