A Farewell To An Old Friend

With the government efforts in modernising the public transport system, old infrastructure makes way for brand new innovations.

The C151 First-Generation MRT Trains, having served Singapore since 1987, is slated for retirement and a big majority of them will be taken apart for scrap.

Without the MRT, how else would we get to where we need to be now?
