A chapter of Singapore's and Malaysia's History is now closed. The railway land between Tanjong Pagar and Woodlands have been given to Singapore. For many years, from the Tank Road Station days of 1910 to the current Tanjong Pagar Railway Station in 1932, trains have plied down this section that is a symbol of Malaysia and Singapore's bilateral ties.

These ties are clearly represented by the railway. Two rails, two countries united by a concrete sleeper, signifying unity and trust. As a train enthusiast myself, it is sad to see Tanjong Pagar go into the pages of history as it had lost it's purpose. Now, it just stands as a work of art; something that has no purpose other than itself.

I have spent a good time of my secondary school days spotting trains at this station. I loved the rumbling of the rails and the smoking clags coming out of the train's exhaust pipe as it makes it's way down the rails. I will miss them. Eventhough the trains still exist between Woodlands and JB, it's no point.

Sayonara Tanjong Pagar and thank you KTMB Malaysia for your presence. Even though we might rumble about trains being late, we still love seeing trains.
