Well...I think it is true what the TV news annouced yesterday night that KTM Railway Gate will be closed maybe for future development but the building will be preserved as a National Monument for our future generation. For the KTM Railway workers Quaters (exactly like our HDB Block) at Spooner Road... I believe that particular land will be developed too...Maybe I'll try to get some shots while they are there and before there get demolished...........
From July 1 to 17 members of the public will be allowed to trek along the enitre line of railway tracks. -AsiaOne

The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) has agreed to allow the public access to access and trek along the railway tracks between July 1 st and 17.
For two weeks the public will have the opportunity to trek along the entire line of railway tracks except for some localised areas.
After July 17, a three kilometre stretch from Rifle Range Road to the Rail Mall will continue to be open to the public till 31 Jul 2011.
The SLA also advises that members of the public should exercise caution when walking along the tracks as some areas are narrow and rough.
The Tanjong Pagar Railway Station and Bukit Timah Railway Station will be closed temporarily to facilitate the moving out of the furniture and equipment by the KTM and its tenants.
Minor works will also be carried out at the Bukit Timah Railway Station and the railway crossings at Kranji Road, Sungei Kadut Avenue, Choa Chu Kang Road, Stagmont Ring and Gombak Drive. Members of the public should avoid these work areas which will be cordoned off.
Visited the railway station on the two outing through club snap. It was really a great experience. Still to sort through the entire collection of images. But was lucky enough to capture some emotions and expressions of the elderly people who also visited the station. I guess it was a very nostalgic feeling for them, quite different from people of our generation. Here is a tribute to those people.
Hi bro...how was the walk just now...managed to get any good shots and are there any other photographers around...? And how was the surrounding area...was it dark or with street lights....sounds interesting...... Sorry just asking...thanks
Ok..nothing much..haha..Yes there is ppl there taking pics the Bukit Timah Railway Station..If anyone wanna to walk the track at night is better to bring a torch lights and go in groups, if not gd luck to you..
From Bukit Timah Railway Station the more you walk toward to the Railway Mall it will damn be dark because there is no street light and all surrounding is brush/tree..Is the same for from Bukit Timah Railway Station towards to Tanjong Pagar Railway Station direction.. no street light..
Peaceful, Quiet, Adventure, dun mind muddy area and get dirty you can jungle walk from Teban to Bukit Timah Railway Station..or either way..
Anybody finished the whole track? Need an idea of how many hours you took. I am thinking of starting from Tanjong Pagar Railyard and walk along all the way back home in the North. And take pics along the way, of course.
