The Singapore Rail Discovery Centre (SRDC), which is built by rail operator SMRT and supported by the Land Transport Authority, aims to showcase the journey of Singapore’s rail networks and educate younger generations about the rail industry.


Launched on 21 November 2022, the centre is open only to organised groups. Schools and other organisations that are interested in touring the centre may contact SMRT at outreach@smrt.com.sg


The centre will also showcase 35 years of rail history and development, as well as exhibits such as the first train captain uniform. Information on the rail’s milestones is also displayed on an interactive screen that can be swiped through using hand gestures.


At the centre, visitors can also learn about the core systems of the rail network as well as key train components. For example, the third rail – a steel rail that powers the trains and is parallel to the main track – is on display. The tour at the centre, which is now about an hour, will be expanded in the future.
