    When the video first started, I assumed we were looking out the back of some tents/stalls - with the businesses open on the sides opposite the tracks. Then after the train went by - out pop all these tables, and the canopies are opened...! Wow...! I guess the train runs on a pretty predictable schedule?

    :eek:

    Nah, I guess the RR accepts this as a regular thing and the engineers start blowing for a minute or more to give the vendors time to un-rig......SRT-FAN, any words?

    Totally believable for Bangkok. Unreal, but believable.

    I hope there was no third rail.

    I take it they don't have insurance companies there.

    I've seen that video clip and would like to inform that the the market in the video is *not* in Bangkok. It is a market in Samut Sakorn province.

    SRT has no electrified territory AFAIK.

    There didn't appear to be a third rail.

    That is making the most out of space.
