A Slice of History (Part 2): Walking the Railway Track

Following the closure of the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, many people have since moved on to walking the 26km railway track, with yesterday being the last day where the public could walk the stretch between Tanjong Pagar and Woodlands.

But before you go hanging your head in disappointment, there's still a chance to enjoy a bit of the history. The track from Rifle Range Road to Rail Mall will stay open till the end of the month. You only have about two weeks more, so hurry.

And that's what the hubby and I did two weekends ago. We drove to Bukit Timah, parked our car at King Albert Park and began our journey. We wanted to bring Kenan along but he was slightly feverish from his vaccination, so left him at home to rest.

We were planning to visit the Bukit Timah Railway Station (which is along the track now closed to public) but once we started taking photos of the bridge, we ended up walking along that part of the track and forgot all about the Bukit Timah Railway Station! It was only when we returned to the starting point that we remembered. By then, it was past 7pm; the sky was getting dark and we were both hungry. So we decided to call it a day.

Here's sharing some photos from our short walkabout...

I've also trawl the internet for some posts with gorgeous (as well as 'gruesome') photos of the railway tracks, hope you enjoy them!

The Green Corridor: Wildlife, Alive and Dead, along the Tracks (be warned: this one contains 'gruesome' photos of dead animals... but that also made it one of the most interesting posts I've seen!)
