KTM Railway

Witnessing of the historical moment between Singapore and Malaysia. 

The last operational day of the KTMB railway at Keppel Road was definately a MUST GO! I decided to take a tour with CK after work since my dinner appointment had been cancelled. It was definately worth the time & effort despite all the noisy images (Many shots taken at ISOs from 2000-6400!).
Armed with a fisheye and a 35-70F2.8 lens, it was not sufficient but at least, better than a kit lens. To some extent, I had to pop some light with my popup flash too.

I had feedback that in the lobby area on this very day, there were presence of many spirits. Anyone felt it? (Was told it could be due to too many people around and also with all the flashes popping around, it raised some disturbance).

These were some of the images I have captured on that very day. Enjoy!

The last bits of the kitchen have been wiped clean…
