So, for your group, about 5 hours.
I'd pad that a bit more. 5 hours is quite reasonable, but so is 6 hours in such a setting.
What are some of the reasons for the longer playlength?
Mostly additional mechanisms and concerns and implications for the players to manage during the course of the game. 1824 is a game in which every player action creates openings and opportunities for the other players, especially as regards track placement and capital allocation or movement, and quite rightly those should be assessed and considered during the course of the game.
