Activity 24: Take the A train
Using the UP and DOWN timetables in Figure 56, draw a distance-time graph for the trains ANl and ASI. Start the graph for ANl at Bridgnorth at 10.35 am and finish back at Bridgnorth at 1.48 pm. The graph for ASI should start at Kidderminster at 10.45 am and finish back at Kidderminster at 1.41 pm.
On its return journey to Bridgnorth, train ANl leaves Bewdley at 12.58 pm. How long must it wait at Arley if ASI, returning from Bridgnorth, is on time? If the ANl travelled from Bewdley at 35 km per hour, how long would it have to wait at Arley before it could continue?
