Railway Line: Now defunct

One of my memories as a child was a train ride to KL in the sleeper carriage of the KTM. The bunk bed had a little round porthole and I remember being very excited as I stuck my face into the glass and took in every sight. Well, the day has come and gone. The railway station in town is closed. Trains to Malaysia now depart from Woodlands.

The tracks will be open to the public for the next 2 months. Then just as quickly, they will be torn out to make room for even more development. C’mon guys, they didn’t fight negotiate for 20 years to get the land back just to make a Green Corridor through the center-line of the island.

Sure looks like a train doesn’t it? No it isn’t, just a couple of kids on the other side of the bridge taking pictures too.
