R = rate of southbound train

4 = time of southbound

4R = distance of southbound train

R - 12 = rate of northbound train

4 = time of northbound

4(R - 12) = distance of northbound train

Since the sum of distances = 528

4R + 4(R - 12) = 528

Solve for R, rate of southbound train

R - 12 = rate of northbound train
