Tanjong Pagar Railway Station

This is my first time posting something unrelated to food and baking.

Don't laugh at me. I have never been on a train before, never in Singapore, never in other countries too. I have also never been to Tanjong Pagar Railway Station. Living in the West part of Singapore, by the time I reach the train station, I would have reached the causeway already. So it doesn't make sense to take a train to Malaysia. So when it is going to cease operation on 1 July, everyone suddenly got interested in visiting Malaysia by train.

I was there two weeks ago trying to get tickets to JB. The tickets were hot since it was the school holidays. I was not lucky enough, the tickets for the next day were all sold out (can only buy the tickets 24 hours in advance for short distance trains, not further than Segamat). Too bad, I could only take some photographs of the train station.

I won't be trying for tickets already. We can always take trains in future. But the scenery along the railway within Singapore will be missed. I hope the railway tracks will not be demolished. Maybe they can develop it into some tourist attractions, add sightseeing trains 观光火车, and make some green and recreational facilities along the railways.

If you feel the same way, support The Green Corridor!
