Train's related articles on NewspaperSg
This is what i found the old news article on NewspaperSg which related to trains:

"MRT trains likely to be made in Singapore", "ASEA-Sembawang venture to build MRT train cars here"(MRT rolling stock likely build in Singapore if ASEA-Sembawang or Singapore Automotive Engineering-Metro Camell wins):

"Getting to know the how it will work"(Technically, the MRT can run automatically, but Singapore prefers not to have driverless train):

"Three on MRT shortlist"(Shortlisted of 3 designs for C151 bid):

"Bigger MRT contract for rolling stock"(Original plans was opted for six-cars trains, then to four-cars train but later back to original plan(six-cars train)):

"Tension mounts as MRT signing day draw near"(Kawasaki has proposed using Mitsubishi or Westinghouse traction motor, but it also considered GEC's")

"Thirty-four selected to bid for MRT contracts" (There are 11 companies/JV bids for C151)

"North-south line off first" 

In 1982, MRTC did not include the present day Pasir Ris, Choa Chu Kang (known as "Bukit Panjang" in the modified plans in 1984) and Expo stations in the system map. There is also an additional station on the EWL: Delta MRT station, to be built between Tiong Bahru and Alexandra stations (Alexandra is today's Redhill).

"Serangoon and Hougang may be next on MRT line" 

Back in 1984 the MRTC (now LTA) had started planning for the NEL. 

A rough sketch of the NEL alignment is shown in this 1986 article. Among the details known was that the NEL was to comprise of the main line from Outram to Punggol and a spur from Hougang to Jalan Kayu. Also, MRTC planned to elevate a certain stretch of the line from Braddell Road onwards (presumably Potong Pasir).
