Tanjong Pagar KTM Intercity station

Tanjong Pagar KTM Intercity Station is where I wish to visit before it is closed to public in July 2011.

In between an errand, I managed to have 40 mins in town today and make it to the station.

The art deco Tanjong Pagar Railway Station:

The large initials "F M S R" stand for Federated Malay States Railways. The four white marble reliefs beneath these initials are allegories of Agriculture, Commerce, Transport and Industry.

Standing on the side platform, I fulfil my wish to visit the station and I am contented to have a photo for the sweet and fond memory!
