Rush Hour

Two people stand back to back next to the rails in a small railway station. As the head of the express train that passes the station reaches them, they start to walk parallel to the rails. As the tail of the train reaches each of them, they stop, having walked 30m and 40m respectively.


If they both walked with identical, constant speed and the train kept its speed as well, can you tell how long the train was?
