KTM Railway

We went back to this railway the following week after the Green Corridor event, this time round with CK as well as Steve.

This time we explored the same station again before proceeding in the opposite direction of the track, towards Gombak (Last week was towards Holland/Ulu Pandan)

This crossing was at Hillview (Where there is a Standard Chartered bank)

This level crossing is at Gombak/Bukit Panjang, where that huge Mindef is. Oh yea, this is the only point, where we met a bastard KTM officer. He was totally unhappy with us for no bloody reason but who cares… We got approval of the station master to take photos! (He was asking us to go back to Bukit Timah Railway to seek permission. Crazy Ass)

Some old houses by the track near Gombak (I think it could be those houses for those KTM officers while at their duties)

A KTM staff that stood by the side of the train doors (probably to enjoy the view of this place before July 2011, where the journey all ends…)
