    Yes, u can take Bus 61, 124, 143 and 166 and see which direction u take the bus, if u take a bus from NUS direction u can alight at Bus stop B10391 and you will be able to see the KTM HDB block on you left or if u take the bus from Telok Blangah, u be able to see Chruch of ST Teresa on you left and after the overhead bridge u will be able to see the KTM HDB block on ur right, alight at first Bus Stop B10399 which just beside Orange Valley Nursing Home..Pls rmb the security staff will stop u from going in and taking photo..u can walk straight up to the Kampong Bahru flyover, from there u can have a nice view of the Rail Way track and take some photo. If u go in the early morning you got chance to take a very good sunrise from there and also dun miss the spider from the side.. If u lucky enough u will be able to take photo of the spider having a meal..

    Anyway, walking the whole track is impossible and even possible, amt of water needed is a lot. Esp during noon time, sun too hot to proceed. My shoes gives way, long time no wear, bottom came off. Still got 2 more parts to cover, can't chiong that much else whole body can't take it.

    Anyway, just becareful on the tracks still as 1 fall, can hurts you badly.

    There is a chance for the station/HDB to be reopen for us to take photos. Just wait for the news.

    Before you walk, take a look on Google map and plan out a bit. There are a few areas with shops or supermarket nearby so you can take a rest (like Railway Mall, King Albert), so you don't have to carry everything. Try to travel light also, don't carry all your gears around.

    Thanks man for the help.

    Hi people, i will most prob be doing a walk tomorrow from the marshalling yard from kg bahru at 6.30am(hopefully can get some sun rise. not sure if can or not) and will walk upwards to rifle range. However, i stop around 11am-12pm(regardless of whether i'm able to reach rifle range) as the weather is going to be super hot after that. Depending of the shots i have taken, i might go back for seconds.

    If anyone is interested, maybe we can meet up somewhere together and head up together or pm me.

    P.S. I'm a newbie and has only just started maybe about 3 months or so. So shooting skill is still raw.

    Go there early in the morning, or if you dare, shoot at night. Tripod long exposure.

    I went again yesterday. Started from Tanjong Pagar MRT at 4pm and ended at Bouna Vista MRT at 8pm. Tanjong Pagar railyard is a real sad sight. Most of the rails are torn up now. Too many people walking along the tracks now to get isolated shots (even in this hot and sweaty weather)! I wouldn't recommend to shoot at night alone. It's dark to even see properly without torch let alone compose properly on the uneven grounds.

    The security had cordoned off right under Kampung Bahru flyover with manned officers sitting underneath in the shade. Didn't see the big "landmark" spider. Access to the rails there is much easier now as someone had put up plank boards across the drain and a man-worn path made from the trails of hundreds of visitors across the week.
