Skywatch Friday - Tanjong Pagar Railway Station - Train

There are many people on the train platform but majority are just shutterbugs to record a piece of history before the train relocated to Woodlands.

I was lucky to take a photo of the 1 pm train that was leaving towards Malaysia.

Close Up Shots of the railway tracks.

I guess all these tracks will be dismantled and recycled or sold as scraps.

A short video of the train leaving the station towards Malaysia.

For other sky watchers, please hop over to Skywatch blog.

The building will be preserved and wont be demolish. Only the tracks will be removed. I have no idea what the station will be in future. Could be a hotel or a museum, really no idea.

I hope parts and bits of the track can be nicely cut to smaller piece and sold as a souvenir just like Berlin wall.
