This video is amazing! It shows a market in Bangkok, Thailand that operates literally on top of the train tracks.
As for Mixed use, try the Skytrain i bangkok. You can take your cat for a haircut in the station! This is a picture I took in the skytrain….
This is not the only moving object with these properties. An old train in Manila ran by a large area inhabited by squatters. They used to throw their trash on the top of the train, a kind of mobile dispos-ile. The train operators got wise and reshaped the train’s roof into a triangle, so that anything tossed up fell, often on the other side.
The point, of course is that space, whether stationary or mobile, is scarce!
Here’s another interesting train image from India:
Wow, that’s what I call mixed-use!
