As the train drove away from the Da Nyin Gone train station, the peddlers returned to the tracks inside the station. The leading role on the tracks once again shifted from the train to the peddlers. What I don't understand is that the peddlers want to do business on the tracks. There are already stores on the platforms, but there is still room for more stores. Besides, the train is the only thing that goes on the tracks, and it is not a place where many people pass by. In my layman's opinion, it would be more profitable to open a store on the platform. Perhaps those who do business on the tracks have some reason for not being able to do so on the platform.

The female vendor in the photo was also doing business on the tracks with baskets of grapes and rambutans. After a while, a man walked up from the other side. They seemed to know each other and exchanged some words. The woman's basket still had some grapes and rambutans left over, so she must be continuing her business on the tracks for the time being.
