KTMB General Discussion!

I've chanced upon this website and it provides some juicy infomation about Singapore Old Railways, dating back to the 1890s plus a map of the existing KTM track and surprising branches spurring out frm it.

The map has unknown timestamp:

There's too many info to post here so I'll jus hyperlink the website:

Old Singapore Railways

Please do take note that some links in the website lead you to invalid pagesSad

Fact: Orchard Road used to have a RAILWAY BRIDGE!!

I heard that whenever a train passes by no one dares to go under the bridge.
Barely active here.

In fact, you can still see the defunct Jurong Line! Some of the tracks and bridges are still intact!

I am planning to go there after PSLE. Maybe walk on the current tracks too. I miss the times where the train passes BPJ X-ing and me being excited to see the train zooming past. Sad
