Choo Choo, here comes the train. Have you guys ever thought of shooting at some railways? I am quite sure most of you did right? Shooting some rusty rails, asking your friends to be the model standing on the railways, capturing the moment of the train passing by on the tracks (this is kind of dangerous) etc. So I will be introducing you guys to a place where you can shoot at railway tracks. This place is none other than Bukit Timah Railway Station which was rebuilt during the early 30s.
Bukit Timah Railway Station is a recreational building which is conserved now, it was a station and crossing loop. Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM), the main operator in Malaysia used to own it. In 1903, it was opened on the dismantled Tank Road mainline, then it was rebuilt in 1932 on Singapore to Johor Bahru KTM Intercity closure. This station served as a freight interchange before it closed on 1st July 2011 for the land swap between the Singaporean and Malaysian governments. Bukit Timah Railway Station is now conserved and it reminds Singaporeans how the country once played the important role as the transport hub in the region. It became Singapore’s endearing landmark and for sure, a main building of its railway history.
So come on down to the Bukit TImah Railway Station and have a great time shooting!
