Tanjong Pagar Railway Station

Tanjong Pagar Railway Station has been officially closed on 1st July 2011.Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) Railway Station in singapore will be relocated to Woodlands Train Checkpoint instead of Tanjong Pagar.

History of the place:-

The Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, located along Keppel Road, is the port of call for trains heading to and from Singapore. Constructed in 1932, it is the terminus for the West Coast line of the KTM (Keretapi Tanah Melayu) Railway line.
Built in 1932 on reclaimed swampland, the station's inaugural opening was conducted by Governor Sir Cecil Clementi Smith on 3 March 1932. It became the southernmost end of the Malayan Railway, serving the needs of Singapore town, particularly the transport of goods from its harbour. The station became one of the latest of the main terminus along the West Coast Line to be completed and thus had some of several unique designs of its time, both in the mechanics of its system and in the design of the station. Until 18 December 1988, friends and relatives could say their goodbyes at the platform, paying a mere 20 cents.

My sis and i wouldn't miss a chance to have a tour before it closed so here are the photos taken on the tour.

We can see the crowds flocking to the station to take photos for memories and have their lunch at the stalls there.It is mainly all malay cuisine and kuih-muih.
