These photos were taken earlier this month. Taken just in case they demolish it. (I hope they will preserve it though).
Residents who stay along the railway track have lived with the sound of train passing and the loud train horns. There will be peace by July 2011. Will they miss the ‘alarm clock’?
The two Bukit Timah signs that tells passengers that they have reached Bukit Timah. They no longer stop here, but when you travel in the day, you will be able to see it.
The Bukit Timah Railway Station. It has been around since 1915!
If you want to read more about the history, the Heritage Trails Singapore website has a write up.
If only KTM (Keratapi Tanah Melayu / Malayan Railway) has tours and demos on how they work. Hopefully after the rail tracks are no longer used after July 2011, they might consider such activities.
