'Train Street' - Between Le Duan and Kham Tien Streets, Hanoi

Deep in Hanoi’s Old Quarter is a narrow street which has been given the title “Train Street.” Every day between 3 PM and 7 PM, residents rush out to bring in their washing, bicycles and children before a train comes hurtling through their street. In some parts of the street there are only inches between the train tracks and the houses. As soon as the train has gone by, locals go back to their normal, outdoor activities.
