Railways in


The first railway in Singapore was a steam tram line opened in 1895. The steam trams were later replaced with electric trams, but services ceased in 1927.

In 1923, a short metre gauge railway was opened connecting the island with the railways of the Malayan peninsula. The line today is operated as part of Malaysian Railways.

The first line of a modern Metro system opened in 1987.
