Trainspotting in Bukit Timah

Come 1 July 2011, the stretch of railway between Tanjong Pagar and Woodlands will be decommissioned, thus marking the end of an era of old railways in Singapore. The old KTM (Keretapi Tanah Melayu) railway station at Bukit Timah, where southbound trains stop to allow northbound trains to cross the single-track Bukit Timah bridge, will also cease operations. Here are some pictures to remember this sleepy little station by.

The station has been gazetted as a national monument.

The all important signal house

An old-fashioned no-frills waiting room

Where three tracks merge into one.

The train from Johore Bahru arrives

Shutterbugs come out

Welcome to Malaysia (soon to be Singapore)!
