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.
    Lucky i was one fo the few to go there early..Haha..

    Hi guys,

    So, is the Tanjong Pagar Yard now open to public?

    If it is, then is it accessible from Tanjong Pagar station or do we need to access from Silat Ave?

    Thanks.

    If you wish to shoot the turntable, walk up to the shop houses, near the Indian temple you will get a decent shoot of it, from the crossover you can have a side view, and HDB block with a top view. The yard tracks almost all are torn away. You can also get a fair shoot of the yard from these places, but you will need a tele lens if you want to have a bit of close ups... Hope they will keep the turntable, it is a mark of the UK engineering (am I correct?). I think that turn table is as old as those steel truss bridges at Bukit Timah

    Yes, the turntable was made by the British. Had the year 1930? imprinted on it. Still fully manual operational and in use after 80 years. I'm still slapping myself for not taking close-up photos of it when I had the chance earlier on.

    me too, only after it closes I discover the how close the turntable is to us. All the while I thought it is at some place center of the yard. The turntable is still very close to us, yet so far with the security guard and the fence >_<

    Is the Bukit Timah station area still open?

    Is it still viable to shoot there?

    Can we walked along the track to shoot?

    Excellent Idea!

    I am in. Will be bring a TLR. Suggest limit to not more than 10 people. Too many will be a mess.

    Yes it still open for public to shoot but the view will not be nice since they fence up the area and put up the SLA sign board..

    I am in. Will be bringing a TLR. Shooting film, slow walk, slow composure.
    Focusing on the remnants of the rails. Start from Tanjion Pagar, slow walk and end Bukit Timah.

    I am VERY interested but I'm unsure of timing/availability as of now BUT, Can I put my name down first??

    P.S: Last week, I started from King Albert Park area, walked on the tracks till Rail Mall, with my Lubitel, and 1 shooting buddy. Took about 2hours (830am-1030am) And finished a grand total of 1x 120 roll. (12 shots which I have not developed) LOL.
