Train station

The Railway station at Tanjong Pagar in Singapore belongs to Malaysia. It is a beautiful old building with a very fine Central Waiting Hall with a dome roof. The walls are paneled with typical Malaysian scenes, such as paddy (rice) planting, rubber tapping, shipping activities, road (bullock) transporting, coconut (copra) growing and tin mining.

There is a hotel with in the premises. In the bathrooms, I mean bathroom, there are shower stalls for travellers who have travel a long distance away and need to freshen up for small sum.

I never enjoyed travelling by train. it is loud, jam packed and takes a long time.
