Kolkata: Civil Servant Shares Picture Of A Train-Themed Gate In A Retired Railway Employee’s House

We often hear employees complain about their work lives, bosses, and busy lifestyles. During times when probably every other person dislikes their job and is bored of doing the same thing over and over again, some employees actually love and enjoy what they do. Recently, we came across the home of a retired railway employee and anyone can guess his profession in just a second thanks to the train-themed gate of his house.

Have You Seen A Gate Like This Before?

Taking to X, J.Sanjay Kumar, IRTS (@Sanjay_IRTS) shared a picture of the one-of-a-kind gate. The picture was originally clicked by Anup.

The post by the civil servant going viral on the X platform shows the main gate installed outside the house of a retired railway employee. It is not just extraordinary but also something that most of us have never seen before. The gate has been made in the shape of the front part of a local train. You will probably find no differences between a train and this gate if you focus only on the gate and not look at the walls beside it.

The similarities are intriguing. From the windows to the headlight to the other parts added in front of a train, the simple gate has been built meticulously. Every element shows the retired railway employee’s love for his job and how he wants to keep a part of his profession with him forever.
