Bukit Timah Railway Station
Compared to the grandiose of the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, the Bukit Timah Railway Station is a charming, quaint station, not unlike some KTM stations in some small towns in Malaysia, such as the one in Kulai, Johor.
The Bukit Timah Station was built in 1932, but it has stopped operating as a embarkation/disembarkation station for passengers for some time already. These days, it is used as a passing loop, where a delayed train stops to wait for another from the opposite direction to pass, since the railway system here is a single-track system.
