I have always had a fascination for train lines and trains themselves yesterday i was out and about looking for graffiti art for the #aswcontest so i decided to walk along the train line hoping to find some graffiti art along the way but it turned out there was none to be seen so i figured while i am here walking the tracks i would have a bit of a play around with protographing train lines they always seem to make good photos.

Walking along a train line in Bangkok there is always a lot of interesting things to look at or happening with the locals like this old lady drying her chilies laid out on a blanket by the train lines.

Certainly the perfect spot to do it on the hot rocks with the sun streaming down on them chilies.

Then i had a visitor a casual dog walking towards me she must have smelt the treats i was carrying in my bag so yep i had to give her some.

See the treats just beside her front legs she seems well feed maybe she will save them for later.

I love the way everyone was going by doing there thing some locals working by the train tracks some just taking a walk and others just sitting by the tracks enjoying the sun and watching the day go by.

These are the views from me standing on the bridge looking at either side of the train bridge looking down at the Bangkok Canal.

One of the local guys that i got talking to said to me be careful standing in the middle of the tracks taking photos i asked him why would that be he said a train will be due any minute now to be coming through i thought ....wow....thanks this i was looking forward to not only have i got photos of the long parallel train lines but i was getting a bonus of seeing a old locomotive coming through.

Well he was not wrong the locals know and then i asked him were do these train head to he said up north of Thailand maybe 500 to 600 kilometers away , it would definitely be a slow trip on these old trains the local said up to 18 hours to get to the north of Thailand not a comfortable ride but was affordable and suited for the lower class people of Thailand it would certainly be a ideal way to see the country side of Thailand that's for sure.

Very excited to have seen and experience the life by the train tracks i then walked of through the local suburban area and found the Bangkok canal were all the graffiti was suppose to be and ended up a successful day.
