George took a train at station X with the intention of going to Station Y (which is located 8 kilometers from station X). At the precise instant that the train started leaving station X, the minute hand of his 12 hour analog wristwatch was located precisely on a minute mark.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

George looked at his watch again at the instant that the train reached station Y, when he observed that the minute hand and the hour hand were exactly coincident, but the minute hand was not situated on a minute mark.

Given that the train left station X between 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. inclusively, and that the speed of the train, in kilometers per hour, is an odd integer greater than 60, determine the precise time when the train left station X.
