The acronym "F.M.S.R." can be found in several places at the Railway Station.  It stands for "Federal Malay States Railway".  I guess it must have been the name of the railway systems in Malaya during the British colonial period.

An example where F.M.S.R. can be found is above the 4 towering statues at the entrance of the Railway Station.  These 4 statues are named Agriculture, Commerce, Transport and Industry - symbols of Malaya's economic pillars, with each personification holding symbols unique to their character.
