Countdown to 30 June - The Soul of Tanjong Pagar Railway Station

Platform Singapura

This will be my last blog post before the railway station closes its door to public on the midnight of July 1, thereby shifting to Woodlands and, in effect, ending 108 years of railway operations in Singapore. The station has been gazetted as national monument but trains will not longer run from it. Catch the trains - the soul of the station - before they are gone!

Catch a train passing under the Kampong Bahru flyover! This one is the 1300 hrs train from Tanjong Pagar, Ekspres Sinaran Selatan, which I also saw at Choa Chu Kang. Thumbnails from my video.
