2013 NHB Motoring Heritage Day

I got to know this free event from Clubsnap, and took my family down.

I have deep memories of the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, as this was the starting point of my yearly voyage by KTM train to visit my maternal grandma in Penang when I was very young. It was a trip that exceed 13 hours but I never failed to look forward taking it.

But with relocation of Malaysian railway operation to Woodlands, the station remains, the painting remains, but not the people.

But the organisers of the event made it special, especially for my kids. There was many fun activities, including painting, colouring and story telling…

The old food stalls cease to exist, the librarian from Queenstown Library ‘took over’ for today.

Some of the railway tracks remains, just barely though.

At least one serious photographer is able to appreciate what is left of it.

Not forgetting the main event today was about vintage cars. I’m not a car person, so could not really appreciate, much less for ancient metals.

Anyway, my kids enjoyed themselves and look forward to more such events! Thank you organisers!
