Bukit Timah Railway Station with the Kids

When we were in Secondary school, my friends and I spent many an afternoon walking beneath the Bukit Timah railway truss bridge on our way to McDonald’s at King Albert Park (KAP). If a train happened to be rushing past overhead, we always made it a point to count the number of carriages. No trains go by on the track now and KAP is gone too.

But we are creating new memories with our kids. The Green Corridor runs behind our place and we can comfortably walk to either the Bukit Timah railway bridge or the one at Rail Mall. We took a stroll to Rail Mall quite recently so we decided to visit Bukit Timah Railway Station over the Hari Raya long weekend.

We were actually planning to climb Bukit Timah Hill but the path is still closed to visitors. While we were walking from Rifle Range Rd (where we had parked) to Bukit Timah Railway Station, we met many other people cycling or walking across the bridge and along the railway tracks. It’s so encouraging to see that the place is far from being deserted or abandoned.
