## Main Question or Discussion Point

In http://members.tripod.com/conduit9SR/SR3.html" [Broken] example of relativity with the space trains, if we are in train B (were will observe train A is moving), then why can't the events be observed simultaniuosly?

If we ARE in the middle of B, then the light SHOULD take the same time to reach from the front and from the back to the middle if the events occured simultaneously, otherwise we wouldn't be in the middle.

If the light didn't take the same time from from the front and the back to reach the middle, then wouldn't we KNOW that WE are moving.

Because how can the events be observed simultaneously by A if A is moving relative to B?
