What interval of time passes between train A passing the station and train B reaching the station?

How far does train A travel in the time it takes train B to reach the station.?

How far is train A from train B when train B passes the station, or what distance between the two trains must train B close when train B passes the station?

If train B is traveling at 120mph and train A 100mph, at what net speed is train B overtaking train A?

Being D miles apart when train B passes the station and train B overtaking train A at Vmph, the increment ot time required for train B to overtake train A becomes T = D/V making the time of meeting 2:35 PM + T.
