My train left London between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. and arrived in Paris between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. I noticed that at the start and end of the journey the hands on my watch were in exactly the same positions but that the minute hand and hour hand had swapped places. What time exactly did the train leave London and how long did the journey take?
