    Default Shooting the Train Tracks this Sunday 13 Feb

    I'm interested in shooting the train tracks this Sunday in Upper Bukit Timah Area.

    I've not had an opportunity to shoot there yet, anyone done it?
    What is the best time?

    I'm going with my EOS 1V and EOS 5D and a couple of prime lens.
    Nikon 55mm f1.2
    Summicron-R 90mm
    Nikon 180mm f2.8

    Anyone want to join?
    Pros / beginner allowed
    SLR / RF / MF /Point and shoot...

    I'm still learning HDR

    Hi robinlow88, maybe you can approach cleonbus.
    He is knowledgeable on the KTM and he should be able to point out the timings suitable for different shots.

    If you are shooting I recommend reaching around 2~3pm onwards. The next train arrives will be around 4pm. So you got about an hour+ to wonder around before the train comes. Then you can stay until 6+ for the 2 trains crossing the tracks or till 7 if you wish to shoot in the night also.

    For your info...

    Due to the recent flooding in Tampin and Kluang,all trains have to slow down when passing by the areas which flooded.As such,KTM expects a delay of between 30mins-1hr.So the 4pm train(From KL) and 6pm train(From Kuala Lipis) services you mentioned are expected to arrive much later than the usual timing.

    To TS,i recommend you catch northbound trains as they will not have delay.There's the 7.15am train to Kuala Lipis,8am train to Butterworth,another at 1pm to KL and the 6pm one to Tumpat.Don't advice you go at night as it is quite dark there except for the light from the train station itself.You might wanna PM another member,Interception7, for more info as he's more experienced than me

    Thanks for the info.

    I'm thinking of meeting tjwhyme then go to shoot the trains in the evening say meet at 5pm at the rail mall and work our way back towards bukit timah (easier to get to anywhere?) Maybe get dinner around Al Ameen?

    That is the tentative plan, may be going with tjwhyme for Chingay as well?

    Chingay 2011 @ Aljunied GRC and Hougang SMC on Sunday, 13 February 2011
    What time does it end?

    tjwhyme what time you want to shoot Chingay? Can we be at upper bukit timah at 5pm?

    Can you plan what time you want to be at Chingay?

    I was at the Bukit Timah Side, and they cut the grass few weeks back. I think we can find a way to the tracks. Unless there is heavy rain.

    I plan to shoot the bridge at the Rail Mall then move towards Bukit Timah, and we can have dinner at Al Ameen area. Its a hike, so don't bring too heavy stuff.

    @ilovemoney Bring any camera, I may have a friend coming with just iPhone.
