    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.

    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.

    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.

    All the comments here seem to go to back up Michael’s point – fly! I think he should get at least 1/2 credit for creativity. Full credit if he answered the question – nonstop NYC to LAX is about 5h 40m. Accounting for time zones the time should be 10:40. However, you should probably figure getting in around 11:00 due to delays taking off, landing, etc.
