Also known as Keppel Road Railway Station or Singapore Railway Station, this station has been closed since 30 June 2011. However the main building of the railway station was gazetted as a national monument.
Now the station is used mainly as an events venue and also site tours.
From left to right, the four sculptures represent Agriculture, Commerce, Transport and Industry – all important aspects of Malaya’s economy in the early 20th century. On top of the sculptures are the alphabets, FMSR, which stands for Federated Malay States Railways.
