"Midnight: since 00:00 is ambiguous (is it later today, early tomorrow, or was it first thing?) railway practice avoids it and uses 23:59 or 00:001 instead, as required. For all practical puposes the intervening two minutes do not exist"

Given rounding conventions, it's only an intervening minute - the semi-open interval starting at 2359.5 and less than 0000.5.
