Weekly Photo Challenge: Relic

This weeks weekly photo challenge from Daily Post is Relic

“Share a photo of what ‘relic’ means to you — it could be your still-running 1979 Honda Accord Hatchback, an historic building in your town, or an old, rusted farm implement poking up through the long grass in a field.”

 

Train station

The building in this photograph appears to have been some sort of utility shed associated with the Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) railway track out of sight, to the left of the frame. The KTM trains used to run from the causeway in the north to Tanjong Pagar in the south of Singapore. KTM stopped operating within Singapore in 2011. The land occupied by the tracks was handed back to Singapore as part of a land swap deal with Malaysia at that time and has since been turned into a green corridor popular with hikers and mountain bikers. I know little of this building other than it sometimes housed homeless and squatters overnight and has not been used in any official capacity since long before 2011.
