Then, there are lots of JB folks who commuted to work daily via the train till some of them know each other and they even chopped seats for one another. I felt sad for these folks who now have to take either MRTs or buses from the Woodlands checkpoint. Tg Pagar is so near the Central Business District (CBD) area and it really a convenience for those who worked around the area.
I've taken some pixs on 27 June 2011 at this railway station. Do enjoy this pictorial post and shared your experiences here if you have commuted from this railway station.

There are really lots of folks here having teh tarik and local Malay cuisines while enjoying the nice and peaceful scenery there during the last few days of the station. There are also lots of photographers who tried to snap as much nice shots as they can before the closing down.
