    I suppose you're talking about the Bukit Timah Railway Stn:



    First of all its NOT abandoned as >7 passenger trains pass by there daily.There is a station master who is in charge of exchanging the tokens there when trains pass by too.Its located near King Albrt Park

    It is relatively safe.
    I was scared out of my wits when crossing it and an elderly gentleman had to come along and guide me across the bridge.
    After I reach the other side, two kids cycle pass us on normal bicycles to the other side of the bridge.

    Go there with a few bottles of beer/drinks, a pack of cigerettes, a big smile and lots of courtesy. In minutes, you'd be ready to shoot.

    From my knowledge,there are 2 station masters working there on shift.1 of them quite strict so you have to get his permission while the other one not so strict and you just need to smile at him

    It is officially not allowed and there are signs stating so, but the station master (at least, the one I spoke to) will allow it if you ask him first before taking photos. But no taking photos inside his office, only the station and surroundings.

    Just a note:

    As a regular at Bukit Timah railway station (I am a railway enthusiast), please seek permission from the Station Master first, before proceeding to do your stuffs. There has been an increase of photographers at the station and safety is an issue here.

    Thank you.
