当我还是个孩子的时候,我就喜欢远方火车的声音。铁轨离我家大约有一英里远

When I was a kid, I used to love the sound of the train in the distance. The tracks were about a mile away from my home. 


火车的声音和夜晚的汽笛声在某种程度上让人放松

The sound of the locomotive and the whistle blowing in the night was somehow relaxing.


另一方面,如果我住在下面视频中的城区,我不认为我会对列车的声音感到浪漫

On the other hand, I don't think I would feel as romantic about the sound of trains, if I lived in the neighborhood in the video below.


在视频中,你可以看到一列火车从人们的门前仅仅几厘米的地方经过。火车站位于越南首都河内的中心

 In the video, you can see a train passing mere centimeters from people's front doors. The train line is located in the heart of Vietnam's capital city, Hanoi.



它通过一个叫做老城区的地方开往龙边桥

It passes through an area called the Old Quarter heading toward Long Bien Bridge. 


火车一天两次隆隆地通过这个老城区:一次在下午4时,一次在晚上7点。当你看到人们往家里放东西时,即使没有手表,你也知道火车要来了

The train comes rumbling through this old neighborhood twice a day: once at 4pm and once at 7pm. Even without a watch you know the train is coming when you see people putting away their things and going indoors.


令人惊讶的是,没有更多的事故发生。幸运的是,当地人一天只穿过两次 

It is surprising that there aren't more accidents. Luckily, for the locals it passes through only twice a day.


列车经过的旧城区有近1000年的历史,是该市最热门的旅游景点之一

The Old Quarter that the train passes through has a nearly 1,000-year-old history and is one of the top tourist attractions in the city. 


在那里,游客们可以看到许多从十五世纪起几乎没有改变的建筑和专门售卖传统商品的商店

There, visitors can find many buildings hardly changed from the 15th century and shops specializing in traditional goods.
