    Since the train is in California the time would be 7:30 pm. You forgot about the time zones.

    Then again, the train would be in the Mountain Time Zone after 14.5 hours, so 8:30 pm.

    For exra credit, calculate Einstein’s Relativity Theory about time and speed of moving objects.

    You’re assuming a train can travel 2,789.7 miles in 14.5 hours. That’s 192 mph. without any stops. Did we get a bullet train?

    At an average speed of 65 mph, it would have traveled 942 miles. That would take it to Davenport, IA, 941 miles; 14 hrs.36 minutes. It would be CST, and 9:30pm. Funny, I could never solve these problems when I was in elementary school.

    A bit fast for trains in the USA today. They run about half the speed of the pre-WW1 trains.

    There is no train going from NY to LA. You have to change trains in Chicago. Amtrak has a speed limit of 25 to 30 miles per hour (40 to 46 km/hr) going thru the mountains of western New York state and western Pennsylvania which means they would still be in the eastern time zone at 10:30pm. In 2008 I took Amtrak from Chicago to Philadelphia, changing trains in Pittsburgh. It took almost as long to go from Pbgh to Philly as it did from Chicago to Pbgh. BTW the border between the eastern and central time zones is about 50 miles (77km) east of Chicago.

    I’ll take the train. LOVE trains. Get to see the country better.
    I’m in no hurry to get from point A to B. Wouldn’t travel such a long distance unless it’s for vacation.

    @Linda Von De Bur

    Plus we have to factor in stops, to chang out the crew, maybe drop off and pick up other freight cars, getting side-tracked for other trains to pass, and how long those stops were.
