Bukit Timah Railway Station is a crossing loop railway station located along Bukit Timah Road, in Singapore, operated by the KTM Railway. In older days, it serves as a popular form of transportation for locals traveling to and fro Singapore and Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru). It is now a conserved building open to visitors. 

How to go: The railway station is easily accesible via one of the many bus services that serve Dunearn road/bukit timah road. Bus services include bus 66, 67, 74, 77, 151, 154, 157, 170, 171, 174, 563, 852, 961, 961C and 970. Alight at the bus stop at The Sterling and walk up a small slope from the main road to the railway station. 

In July 2012, following a historic land-swap agreement between the Singapore and Malaysia governments, the line was declared closed. Hundreds flocked to have a last look at the station before it’s final operation.

A couple of friends and I made a trip along the railway at Bukit Timah Road, and also the stretch near Queenstown, to savour the last moments while taking in the beauty of the sights along the railway line.

Though the mood was lighthearted, in our hearts we all silently mourned the loss for our children who will never get the chance to take the KTM from Singapore to JB
