A tribute to 80 years of rail travel

Yesterday marks a very historic date in the history of rail travel in Singapore. The Senandung Sutera of the Malayan Railway (KTM) took her last journey out from Tanjong Pagar station at 10pm and the station closes its doors to 80 years of rail travel. The last time I took a train from Tanjong Pagar was when I was just a little boy, making a trip back to Butterworth on the early-morning Ekspres Rakyat. Back then, a journey from Singapore to Butterworth took 17 hours. When I heard that KTM would be shifting their operations to Woodlands, I took the opportunity to have as many wedding photos taken at the rail tracks as possible. Here are some from my collection taken over the last two years.
