This is going to be a thing of the past soon. The railway tracks run from West Malaysia into Singapore from the North. The main station in Singapore has always been Tanjong Pagar station located in the south of the island. Soon the Tanjong Pagar station will be closed and declared a heritage site. Train passengers to and from Malaysia would have to embark and disembark at Woodlands Station in the North.
I arrived in Singapore on one of these trains. Twenty eight years later, I still wonder if I will stay . . .
