Waiting for midnight train

That was an evening I was alone on a trip to Strasbourg. I needed to change a train at this small German town. Next train would arrive in two hours (from the moment I took this photo) and nobody around except me. At some point a man came to the platform and standing about 5 meters away from me. I started feeling a bit nervous. This stressed feeling lasted for about half an hour till a cargo trian arrived at the station. The man was a train driver, he was waiting for the cargo train coming to take up his shift. And finally I was laughing at myself - silently - in the mid night - alone again at this very quiet train station after the cargo trian left with its heavy breathe.
