【In Memory of the Tanjung Pagar Railway Terminal 】 【 记忆里的丹戎巴葛火车终站】

【In Memory of the Tanjung Pagar Railway Terminal 】
【 记忆里的丹戎巴葛火车终站】

KTM railway was my ONLY commuting transport to and fro my hometown to Singapore during my schooling days. When the train ended its journey in Singapore and stopped at Tanjung Pagar, I used to speak to myself, I was still standing in Malaysia until I stepped out of the Tanjung Pagar station. Truly, the building and the stretch of railway tracks on the Singapore land were held under the Malayan Railway on a 999 year lease. The station was officially closed on 30 June, 2011 when the new Woodlands Train terminal came into service. I like the colonial building of the Tanjung Pagar Station. I am glad Singpost came out with a stamp on Tanjung Pagar Railway Station, and I was able to find a relevant card to realise a maximum card.

年少到新加坡念书,乘搭的就是马来西亚铁道局的火车直达新加坡的丹戎巴葛火车终站。当到达丹戎巴葛时,终会洋洋在对自己说,在还没踏出火车站一步,我还在踩在马来西亚的土地,只因一直以来,丹戎巴葛终站和新加坡境内的铁道都属于马来西亚铁道局拥有,租赁期 999 年。自从兀兰新建的火车终站在2011年7月1日启用后,丹戎巴葛的最后一趟火车于2011年6月30日午夜开出后宣布关闭。我喜欢丹戎巴葛殖民地色彩的建筑,怀念那高耸的侯车大厅。丹戎巴葛走进了历史,高兴新邮政发行一枚纪念丹戎巴葛的邮票,让这古色古香的建筑永远收录在邮票里。我总不错过制作一枚极限片纪念。共赏!
