Service 913 to shuttle me from Woodlands Train Checkpoint to Woodlands MRT. There was an earlier 912 but I didn’t take it. More details here.

The interior of the Mercedes-Benz O405G (Volgren). Got the front sideways seat in the rear cabin as there was more space for my bags. Not my favourite seat on a bus though.

The interior of the KHI EMU. All seats in the middle of all carriages in the KHIs are removed. And since all the remaining seats were taken up, I had to stand all the way to Bishan. Oh well.

The actual final train I took from London to Singapore – the Alstom Metropolis on the Circle Line.

From my destination station, I continued by bus for the final leg of my journey.
