Linesmen Alf and Bert were checking the railway line from Timesborough to Teaserton: Alf started at Timesborough, Bert at Teaserton and they walked towards each other at their own steady speeds. A train from Timesborough, travelling at constant speed, reached Alf at noon and passed him ten seconds later. At 12.06 the train reached Bert and passed him eight seconds later.
At what time did the two men meet?
