The Tanjong Pagar railway station was until 30 June 2011 the southern terminus of the railway service operated by Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) of Malaysia. It was announced that the operator would move out of Tanjong Pagar railway station and establish a station at Woodlands (north of Singapore), making it the southern terminus of the Malaysian rail network. The land on which the station and the KTM railway tracks are situated were so far held by KTM and was then returned to Singapore. It is today referred to as The Green Corridor.

My son and daughter in law, were in Malaysia and they showed a lot of pictures from the rainforest. Real beautiful.
Your picture is amazing, I love those curly new sprouts of ferns. Wonderful green indeed.
Ayush Basu: You're quite right. Malaysia certainly has a lot by way of tropical vegetation and forest cover, some of which under threat owing to commercial plantations.

Thank you very much, Astrid

And it doesn't get much greener than this Ayush
Ayush Basu: You are very correct about that Chris, thank you very much
I love ferns unfolding
Ayush Basu: I love them too, Bill.
Oh... This fern reminded me of NZ! wink
Ayush Basu: Now that you mention it, it does!
So green and beautiful Ayush!

That sounds interesting. Does that mean that the station is now further out of town? I like your shot very much.
Ayush Basu: Yes, Alan. Earlier station in the heart of the city has been closed and a station right at the border is in operation. The interim section of tracks and related equipment has been dismantled. Thank you very much
I truly love this shot, ferns being one of my favorite plants.
Ayush Basu: I am pleased to hear that, Mary. Thank you very much

Green, very green corridor. The unfurling of a fern leaf is always special to me.
Ayush Basu: Sure is, Louis, I find it very appealing too.
What a beautiful bit of nature you have shwoed us Ayush, and your notes about the railways are of course very interesting to me.
Nice example of the "fiddle head" of a fern smile
this is a beautiful capture of new life sprouting forth in the green corridor Ayush....petersmile
