$90$ kilometers per hour

#### Explanation:

Originally, the train will arrive at the place in:

(60color(red)cancelcolor(black)"km")/(72color(red)cancelcolor(black)"km""/h")=5/6 \ "h"=50 \ "min"

Because it starts $10$ minutes late, it only has:

$50 \setminus \text{min"-10 \ "min"=40 \ "min"=2/3 \ "h}$ left to arrive on time.

Therefore, it must go at a speed of:

s=(60 \ "km")/(2/3 \ "h")=90 \ "km/h" to arrive on time
