    Default Bukit Tmah Railway Station ~ 30 June 2011

    Anyone game for an early morning shoot on this "last" day? Have not been there myself but want to "do it" for the first and last time.

    I'm not exactly sure where you meant (where you will be stationing) as I'm a newbie as far as locations of our railway tracks is concerned but I intend to be at the Bukit Timah Railway Station around 6-9am (still googling how to go there by cab/taxi), pay the station master a visit, and shoot the trains passing by as well as the exchange of tokens.

    I will take bus to near where king albert park macdonald is and walk in to that railway station. I think it should be a breeze in.

    The Map. *do not go in by the King Albert Park there*

    Edit: It's not blackmore drive also

    It's a ulu road leading in from the main road...inbetween KAP and Blackmore drive. Refer to map (here). The path is marked with the Railway track (dash lines). It's somewhere near there.

    I will be taking a cab/taxi. To be specific (as I intend to be there before 6am and the sky is still dark), in case the cab/taxi driver is ignorant, where should I tell the driver to alight me? MacDonald's or Blackmore Drive please?

    Thank you.

    Is it the same path that points Bukit Timah Railway KTM in blue? That's the place i will walk in. I hope it's correct.

    Please note my previous post edit...paiseh...

    It's a ulu road leading in from the main road...in-between KAP and Blackmore drive. Refer to map (here). The path is marked with the Railway track (dash lines). It's somewhere near there.

    Thank you.
    Tell the Taxi Driver, Bukit Timah Railway Station, stop where you see the railway track overhead and presumably you be able to walk in. if unsure, please google and see the place now, so roughly you have an idea where it is. It should help you with getting there with ease.

    Thank you, calkel20, skystrike & bananah. Appreciate all your pointers. I hope I'll be luckier than some of those Amazing Race competitors in getting a knowledgeable cab/taxi driver tomorrow morning.

    I sure don't want to miss it tomorrow. Really regret I didn't join in any of those trails organised by the Green Corridor.

    Calling a cab can be an option...But be sure to avoid the morning working crowd....else you will find yourself get stuck on the expressway.

    Just to let you know,the road into the station has no street lamps and it is very dark.If you plan to alight along Bt Timah Rd,alight at the bus stop infront of The Sterling(Condo) and walk in.Do bring along a torchlight also...

    Btw do beware of oncoming trains as there is a southbound train passing around 6.12am heading towards Tg Pagar.

    Super crowded every where liao. Been to TP n BT side. If they good, they allows u to take else you will get a scolding/prevention from them. But mind those who going to BT tmrw, dont STAND near to the tracks and take photos and make the station master to SHOUT at you. Always keeps a safe distance and ASK when the train is coming before taking, for your OWN safety. Anyway, I will be there too, after my night shift later....
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!
