The 12 pictures below were taken in Kuala Lumpur between Late 1972 and April 1976, shortly after regular steam operation had ceased.

The following 9 pictures were taken at Bukit Timah station, Singapore, during a lunch break, probably in 1976.

The 3 pictures on the left, below, show Singapore shed and station from Mount Faber in 1972. The picture on the right was taken somewhere in Malaysia around the same time.

The 6 pictures above were taken in Kuala Lumpur in March 1975, while the 12 below were between Kuala Lumpur and Ipoh a couple of days later, the last two being at Kampar showing 22135 GELIGA on a northbound passenger service.

In August 1975 we moved from Changi, in the eastern corner of Singapore, to near Holland Village between the city and Bukit Timah, in the centre of the island, as my company had moved to new offices at Bukit Timah. One bonus was that the main line from Singapore to Johore Bahru in Malaysia ran past our back garden, and another was that it was a short walk from the office to Bukit Timah station where there is a passing loop. Unfortunately, on the few occasions I was able to get to this station at lunchtimes there were rarely any passing trains, and the only time I saw a freight on the branch to Jurong, with a class 20, I was unable to photograph it. The majority of the photographs were taken from my back garden. Due to the large number of pictures I took over the next 2 years I have divided them into several pages to make viewing quicker and easier. They can be found in the links prefixed 'Singapore' below.
