Expert Answer:

Let the first train take x sec to cross the othe train. 
Speed of the first train - 28km/h = 70/9 m/s
Speed of the second train = 22km/h = 55/9 m/s
 
The first train needs to cover 250m in order to pass the other train, but, since both the trains are travelling in the opposite direction
 
So, 250 = 70/9x + 55/9x
x = 18 sec
