Mela Railway Station

Mela Railway Station was a railway station located in Mela, Pahang, right in the middle of Kampung Mela. During the last stage of operations, Mela operated as a railway halt.

The current station building is actually the second incarnation of Mela Station. The first building was burnt down by communists during the Malayan Emergency (not sure about the specific year). The foundations of the original building are still clearly visible today and part of it has been turned into a warung. The foundations of the original building are much larger compared to the newer building.

The current building hasn’t really been used properly after the discontinuation of services and someone is currently using it as a place to hang their laundry.
The office room has been locked shut for over a decade now I think although there is a window through which you can take a peek of the inside. There seems to be some abandoned gizmo inside it.

In the past, Mela used to have a loop line but that has been torn out a long time ago and no traces of it remain. There used to also be a few telegraph poles but that has been taken down (or collapsed) a few years back.

One thing I would like to highlight about this station is how well kept the classic black and white station sign is. The last time I visited in June, the sign looked as if it had just been given a fresh coat of paint. Kudos to whoever is maintaining the sign.
