Buy a car?
Ride in the first or last car of the train. If there is seat at the extreme end right next to the driver compartment, take that one, and place your tripod, opened but not extended, in front of you and your gear to act as a barrier. Worst case someone kicks your tripod a bit, but no harm done. If no seat, try to stand near that extreme end of the train as well.
Take a cab, if not just walk
don't wash the photo vest and make it smell really bad
Just hang around Singapore Expo MRT or City Hall MRT stations and observe how the clever ones do it during HiFi Show, Electronics Show, IT Show or PC Show and lug even bigger boxes around ......
Farrer Park MRT station on Sundays is also prime example when u see how people lug huge luggage, bags and boxes on and off MRT trains

shaddap and just shoot .... up close
Just live with it lor...
I dont think MRT in SG will be worse than Tokyo train.
I have live with it for almost 3 yrs.....
Most of the time, I put my bag at the over head rack.
But for MRT, there isn't any over head rack.
Here are some sample photos how pack the train in Tokyo...
BTW does the MRT officer come to the platform to push you in to the train like this ???
I think you should be luck that MRT in SG is not like that...
Suddenly I am glad I live in Singapore and I will stop complaining MRT so crowded from today
Do I need to teach you how to walk? If you are in a crowded train, just tough luck you'll have to give way if your equipment is blocking the way. If not, wait for another train, go to other cars, step out and give way, take a cab, whatever!
