Riddle

Two trains, 1000 miles apart, leave at the same time from points A and B.

The train leaving point A is travelling due south at 35 miles per hour.

The train leaving point B is travelling due north at 70 miles per hour.

Meanwhile, two hoses are filling two identical 1000 gallon tubs with water.

Tub A is being filled with 7 cubic feet of water per minute.

Tub B is being filled with 21 cubic feet of water per hour.

So, in a frictionless world, under ideal conditions, how long will it take Billy Ocean to issue a formal public apology for his career?
