Bukit Timah Railway Station

About a month ago, I visited Tanjong Pagar railway station. Today, accompanied by fellow bloggers Flora and Singapore Noodle, I explored another relic of the heyday of train travel in Asia.

Way back when, there must have been crowds and cargo here, awaiting their trains to Malaysia and beyond. This morning, there were just a handful of employees at Bukit Timah railway station. Their primary tasks are to regulate passing trains and grant eager tourists (and adventurous expats) permission to take photographs.

Next year, this section of the railway will be dismantled “to meet Singapore’s development needs.” However, the Bukit Timah railway station will be preserved.

  1. These photographs are gorgeous! They remind me of being in college photography class and developing black-and-white prints in the darkroom.

    You are clearly meeting people and going on adventures (as usual!). Can’t wait to see more.

  2. lovely blog… easy to read!

    am glad you are enjoying living here… there is a lot to see and do on “The Little Red Dot”… and amazingly, a huge amount of history too.

    I have been on this train and it was a great experience. Just did it for the fun. Went to JB on the bus and came back on the train… very expensive trip though… cost me TWO DOLLARS!
