I'd like to point out that the NYT article implies that the two trains will always meet at the midway point between the two cities. That's true for the given problem, but not true in general. If one of the trains was going faster or slower or if the two cities were farther apart, the meeting point would be different.

(Yes, I do realize I am a COLOSSAL nerd for pointing that out. Thank you for asking.)
