Railway Track


5 July 2011

It was the first time I’d seen a railway track in my life. 3 years ago, at the age of 18. It felt surreal then. Despite the A’Level madness, I managed to garner a couple of friends to visit the track with me on Youth Day holiday before it’s too late! Who knows, 20 years down the road, these pictures would be worth a gold bar? 😉

(Reality check: 3 years later, in 2014, the tracks have ceased to exist. They’ve demolished it and it’s now a barren land. Check out my next post for the land that took over this now-ancient tracks. Google “the green corridor” if you want the latest updates.)

It was a cool exploration!

This place wasn’t easy to navigate, especially when I lived in the east all my life and the only journeys I used to make is to and from school. This was one of the many explorations around Singapore I did since then.

I’m loving train tracks even more now than before. (Have a compilation of train tracks photo from Cambodia- I will share it in time to come.) There’s something about the tracks, the symmetry, the rust from the ageless days, the mystery of the countless of trains that have rode the tracks I stand on, that attracts me.

I’m loving exploring, even my own country, plenty too. I do it as and when I’m free. Thankful that I have a companion who would brave the external conditions with me and test photo-taking skills together too. 🙂 You can’t imagine how excited I am for exchange in 3 months time! :O
