There was a shack built beside the railroad tracks with a dog lying on the front porch

As I wandered around the platform of Thon Buri station in Bangkok, I came across cheerful people, but there was no sign that the stationary trains would start moving. Perhaps there are not many trains to and from this station to begin with. The air was so tranquil that I decided to leave the station before the train left. I started walking along the road that runs along the railroad tracks. The tracks in this area are single track. The single track stretched through the thick trees.

After a while, I found a place where I could cross the tracks, though there was no crossing, so I decided to do so. As I crossed the tracks, I saw a small hut beside the tracks. The location was a bit far from the station, and it didn't look like a railroad hut. It might have been a shack that the locals built on their own in an empty space. But no matter how you look at it, it is built on the railroad track, and the entrance is on the railroad track side. At the entrance, there was a well-behaved dog sitting and staring at me. Thai railroads are state-run, just like Japan used to be, so perhaps this dog is also a civil servant.
