The question doesn't tell you that the train and the bus travel the same path, so statement (1) is not sufficient.

Statement (2) by itself is obviously insufficient

You know that the bus takes twice as long as the train. According to statement (1), the bus takes 5 hours. Since statement (2) gives you the bus's rate. Therefore both of them combined give you the answer.

Sofere is right!! The key point is that the bus and the train normally have their own different routes
