This railway line in Hanoi is several inches away from the doorsteps of buildings!

This railway road passes through an old commercial and residential neighborhood of Hanoi, Vietnam. It wouldn’t attract our attention if it weren’t right in-between houses, just a few inches from the doorways!

As amazing as it may sound, people living on this street feel quite comfortable. Every morning they throw open their doors, take out chairs, sit and talk to their neighbors, do the laundry, wash the dishes and even cook right on the railway!

Children of all ages also play there and don’t seem to be afraid of any train. The thing is that the train passes only twice a day, at 4 pm and 7 pm. The locals know the schedule pretty well and several minutes before the train, suddenly start to file into their homes.

And in this video you can observe the train in action:
