From memories of holidays in Normandy, a 'proper' 'French toilet' should only have the lower half of the door and a hole in the floor, plus a bidet. And as one wit remarked, bidet was two days before D-Day...!

Another small building, crossing guard hut

Once upon a time, railroad crossings were manned, and the barriers were muscle powered.
passage a niveau de campagne - Le forum en papier

From the web page:
"This type of crossing was encountered in places lost to man but not to game, in deep countryside preferably near or in a small wood. I kept a few in 1969 or 1970. The day was long (12 hours of presence! Long live the 35 hours) but I enriched it with the reading of large books and observations of the surrounding fauna and flora. I think it must have been hard in the winter at night, but the students were on vacation in the summer! The gates were constantly closed, they were opened when a rare passer-by asked for passage, sometimes a herd of a few horned and fortunately disciplined animals hurried slowly while one wondered if a train would not unexpectedly appear. It never happened. The beginner's luck no doubt! I think these small huts replaced older, more rustic shelters that the caretaker of 1960 would have refused..."
