The Old Bukit Timah Railway Station is the most iconic landmark of the Rail Corridor. It is the terminal destination for Rail Corridor South which stretches from Tanjong Pagar all the way here covering a distance of about 10 km.

Yesterday was Good Friday and I decided to walk my way from my house at Stirling Road to this most rewarded destination of the Rail Corridor So uth. I accessed the corridor at Commonwealth Drive, passed by Biopolis and One North Park, Ghim Moh Ulu Pandan CC, Mount Sinai, Jelita Cold Storage, Greenleaf View before reaching the railway station. This stretch of the corridor was the quietest and attracted the most visitors. Unlike the stretch from Queensway to Tanjong Pagar which was noisy from the nearby on-going construction works and the heavy traffic plying along AYE which run parallel with the corridor, this stretch of corridor was immuned from all these noises. You could hear bird chirping and `whistling' as if trying to attract the attention of the `pretty women' strolling by. I felt relaxed and enjoyed breathing in the abundant negative ions released from the nearby dense forest.

Seeing the structure of the old railway quarter at the old station invokes nostalgic memory of the past. During the 80s when KTM (Keretapi Tanah Melayu) was in operation, I was a patrol Sergeant attached to the nearby police post and this area came under our purview for frequent visits. I remember patronising a hawker stall operated by an Indian local selling teh tarik and nasi lemak just outside the station building. It was the best teh tarik and nasi lemak I had in my life. Now the staff quarter is taken over by a cafe who had refurbished the interior of the building with lavish decoration and it looks impressive. I like the spice garden just outside the cafe building.

Many visitors were curiously exploring the Bukit Timah Truss Bridge, sitting on the railway track to take photos and children `plying' the train wagons while their parents took photos of them. It reminds me of my trip to JiJi train station in Central Taiwan where I was fascinated with the Japanese old train locomotive on display. I think the authority can consider putting a reburbished model of the old British model of KTM locomotive on the railway track to boost up the attractiveness of this station.

From the old station, I walked further down to Beauty World to explore the newly open Rifle Range Nature Park. The Nature Park is easily accessible as it branches out from the rail corridor at Beauty World and both are interconnected. I spent about 10 mins at the Nature Park and left for my return trip home.

When I reached home I was physically exhausted having covered a total of more than 12 km of walk on the day!

Was excited to walk across the old rail bridge. We were massively disappointed since it is now closed for refurbishment. The old station itself is still available to see but all fenced up.

I was a little disappointed when I arrived at the Former Bukit Timah railway station. I was expecting seeing more.
There are only tracks on the bridge and in front of the station which is under renovations
