**Laguna**, Thursday, September 2, 2010 at 8:06amAs the train is travelling at 40 Miles per hour, in two minutes it will travel:

40 / 60 * 2 = 1.333 Miles.

There are 5280 feet in one mile, so that would make the train:

5280 * 1.334 = 7040 feet long

The cars are 50 feet long each, so that would make the train have:

7040 / 50 = 140.8 Cars Long.
