possible crossing

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was published in The Straits Times on various dates between May and July 1903. The highlights are my own to indicate where trains are scheduled to cross.

Holland Road came into use on the 16th July 1903 but I cannot find any copy of the timetable effective from this date yet. It is possible that from that date some or all trains stopped at Holland Road within the easy 9 minute allowance between Cluny Road and Bukit Timah.

My interpolation of the timetable which may have been in effect from 16th July 1903

Singapore and Kranji Railway.

 

     The Passenger Train Service will be as under from 16th July, 1903, and until further notice,

My records show that Holland Road station came into use on 16th July 1903. I have yet to find a timetable for the remainder of 1903 so I have taken the May 1903 timetable and interpolated my own timings for Holland Road, shown in red above. This is based on the allowance between Cluny Road and Bukit Timah remaining at 9 minutes with the Holland Road stop included in the October 1903 timetable.

 
 
 

 

Copy of published timetable for 1st October 1903 until 3rd January 1904.

     From 1st October, 1903, and until further notice.

This is the earliest timetable so far located which shows both Holland Road and Johore times. Compared to the previous timetable more services run through to Woodlands, there is an extra train on Sundays (which does not stop at Holland Road) and some point-to-point times have been further reduced.
