Tomorrow 07Jul2011, train will depart for Malaysia from Woodlands (no more Tanjong Pagar), ending 108 years of KTM history.

Last week, we trek for two hours on Upper Bukit Timah railway from RailMall to ten-mile junction last week, and it was a fun and educational (history lesson) trip.

We hope Government will consider preserving some portions of "GreenCorridor" for us to visit, and enjoy nature.

saw your pic of an hindu temple....reminded me of a Indian shrine y the railroad...somewhere along Queensway before the Catholic church.

Is it still there or removed to make way for the link btw Queensway and AYE?

Was at the king Albert portion of the track yesterday. The station has been fenced up so u can't get close for pic of inside.
Anyway could see hundreds of trackers along the track this morning. Better hurry before it's GONE!
