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).
