A train leaves from New York City (NYC) heading towards Los Angeles (LA) at 100 mph. Three hours later, a train leaves LA heading towards NYC at 200 MPH. Assume there's exactly 2000 miles between LA and NYC. When they meet, which train is closer to New York City?

When they meet they are both at the same spot, so then they are the same distance away, right?

The train from New York City. When the two engines meet, the cars stretching back behind the train from New York are closer than all the cars from Los Angeles.

There is no train cars in the question, just the engines
