By Melissa Chong, Channel NewsAsia, 1 Jul 2012.
It has been one year since the closure of the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station.
On Sunday, visitors got a chance to explore the heritage site.
For the early risers, there were guided tours organised by the Nature Society of Singapore.
Others chose to hike the entire 10 kilometres from Bukit Timah to the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station.
But the highlight was the station itself, where over 100 visitors turned up to learn about its architecture and history.
“Many things can’t be experienced in a shopping centre, so every weekend I will take my daughter to visit different buildings and get close to nature,” said one visitor.
“The railway corridor is a nice stretch of greenery. It’s peaceful and you see abit of wildlife like birds and insects… So it’s quite nice and scenic,” said another.
