SGTrains is a community website created and run by train enthusiasts, documenting and sharing the little-known facts about Singapore's rail network.
It was started in 2011 by a group of train enthusiasts, united by a passion for rail transport.
Since then, we have come a long way - SGTrains now contains many pages of information - on topics spanning across the rail network - as well as an active community on the SGTrains Forums.
SGTrains also organises events, such as meetups and the annual Singapore Train-Enthusiasts' Amazing Race (STAR).

SGTrains is a community, which means the answer to this question has two possible answers:
The first answer is: everyone who participates in the community, be it online, on the SGTrains Forums, on social media, or elsewhere.
We normally refer to them - perhaps it includes you - as SGTrains members, especially for forum members. Everyone, including you, can easily sign up on the forum, and start participating!
The SGTrains Team is the team of people behind SGTrains: they keep SGTrains running, events organised, and forum and social media pruned and top condition.
The SGTrains Team can be split into two groups: the Management Team, and the Forum Team.
The management team is responsible for everything involving SGTrains: from events, to day-to-day operations of the SGTrains Forums, to maintaining our social media presence, and more!
