The Memories of KTM Railway in Singapore: Tanjong Pagar Station

When people heard of Tanjong Pagar KTM station, they will tell you that this is the only railway station where you can board the train to Malaysia. Many people fond good memories at Tanjong Pagar KTM station.

Before the budget airline industry are blooming, Railway is the secondary transport mode to travel to Malaysia. Primary transport mode will be the coach.

At that time, it was considered cheapest rate compared to airline. Many people would choose to board the train at night as they can sleep throughout the night and reach Kulua Lumpur in the morning.

Before the closure of Tanjong Pagar KTM station, I managed to visit to Tanjong Pagar KTM station and capture some of the highlight inside the station.

When I reached the Tanjong Pagar KTM Station, I was attracted by the building structure. The building look like Europe feel and it does not make you think that you are in Singapore!

Inside the station building, I saw three mural hung on the high wall which was reflected the immigrants during the colony time.

On the ground floor, you can see the ticket counter and Tourism Malaysia display. If you are hungry or thirsty, you can get it from the minimart or canteen. On the second floor, it used to be a hotel for traveller and was named as Station Hotel.
