A sign bears testament to the old train station lineage

An almost obscure sign in the Klong San market in Bangkok bears testament to the old train station lineage. I would have missed it, had my guide not pointed it out to me. I was still getting used to a new Sigma lens with f 2.8, I was fresh off the plane, and a tad shaky, so my night pictures with my Nikon D7000 dSLR did not turn out as well, as is apparent from the lack of sharpness of this image. My iPhone X did a much better job of the night shots, and thank goodness my capable guide was more than conversant with it’s many features- she had been using iPhones for a while. I could not find any information on the net about Klong San train station in it’s heydays- where the train lines coming out from it ran to and why and when the line closed.(Bangkok, Thailand, Oct. 2018)
