Three Passengers and Train Station Puzzle

  1. Jan 19, 2010 #1
    Brian, Amy and Stephanie are waiting at the train station. Each of the three is waiting for a different train.

    When they check the station clock, they realize that Amy is going to have to wait twice as long for her train as Brian will for his, while Stephanie will have to wait twice as long as Amy. The train schedules are as follows:




    DESTINATION …..TRACK …….DEPARTURE
    Newburgh…………....3………………16:48
    Springfield…………...7……………….16:57
    Clarksville…………....4……………….17:15


    What time is it?
