Train Station (Posted on 2007-02-11) Difficulty: 3 of 5
A local person was about to get into the last car of a train when the door closed and the train started moving with a constant acceleration of 1.0476 m/sē. However, the door of the next car 50 m away was still open so he ran and got into the train.

Where is this train station located?

The station must be someplace where there are world class track athletes.  A real solution requires near-olympic-type running speed.  I'll publish the math when I get a chance.
