Part 2 of 3: Bukit Timah Railway Station.

Bukit Timah Railway Station is a small single-storey building which became a passing loop since late 1940s when the Jurong Line was shut down. It has closed together with the TPRS on 1 July.

Oops. Shh.



Traces of time.



Always prudent to wear a good, trusty pair of walkabout shoes during shoots.



Reminds me of the poem Raisin in the Sun. Does it dry up? Or does it explode?


It’s the last weekend before the station closed. Maybe that’s why the station master was more lenient with us taking photographs.







An old abandoned house opposite the station.




There is a precious sense of nostalgia that I wish wouldn’t be destroyed hereafter.

  1. beautiful collection of pictures! 🙂 i’ve been coming across many blog entries on both tanjong pagar and bukit timah railway stations and i think it’s great that many of us are taking pictures and keeping an archive of it. Good to share with the future generations! Speaking of the stations, thankfully both stations will be conserved although the future for the railway tracks remain uncertain.
