    • Dear train enthusiasts, train fans, and the general public,

      PLEASE DO NOT UPLOAD ANY TRAIN MEDIA UNLESS YOU HAVE PRIOR PERMISSION TO DO SO BY SMRT AND SBS TRANSIT STAFF. This is due to the suspected planned terrorist attack at Orchard Station. Any video uploads without knowledge of staff may cause suspicion in you helping the terrorists.

       

      Thank you.

      Read this? Well, this may alert the security in Singapore so please try not to upload anymore videos and photos for now. I won't know when this will resume, but will probably be a long time... None of us want to ruin the reputation of this forum and stuff like that, yeah.

      I know everyone is sad. I'm sad too. But please help us and restrict your train photo and video uploads to a certain limit, which is to be as low as possible.

      Thank you.

      [QUOTE from  willis_chong from Press Releases]

      I'll roughly translate it out then.

      "Singapore has train fans who enjoys taking photos of trains and sharing them with other train fans online. This has made the public worried.

      In this discussion room for Singapore Trains, it congregated many train fans who likes taking media of trains

      As known from 'Lianhe Wanbao', these train fans like to take photos of exterior and interior of train advertisements, and share it with other train fans on the discussion board.

      They also compared trains from last time and the ones currently, which brought back memories of Singapore's transport system.

      However, on 29th March, Russia's capital Moscow had 2 metro trains packed with people bombed, which caused 39 deaths and almost 70 injuries.

      MRT stations are now again the the focus of terrorists, which caused the MRT system to raise its security even more.

      Some members of the public worry, if people take media of trains within MRT stations, would the security be affected? Would terrorists find out anything from those media that makes it easier for bombings?

      One of the train fans within the discussion board, posted a notice 2 days after the incident, warning them to refrain from taking train videos and photos, that's because 'if you get caught (from taking photos and videos of trains), you may not be let off easily like all other times. You may even be arrested immidiately.'

      The moderator of the discussion board also stated 'If you still want to take photos and videos of trains, take them at your own risk. Tou can continue to post your pictures and videos of trains, however.'

      Many of the train fans felt disappointed after reading the notice. Someone asked, 'When will security here be loosen? Not being able to take photos and videos of trains make us sad.' "

      May not be accurate, but at least gives you a summary about the article.

      I have train videos from Bangkok (BTS and MRT), Taipei Metro & High Speed Rail, and the most is hk MTR. Hong Kong is very slack on filming cos they got an MTR fan club. So u'll see ppl filming on trains randomly....so gd!

    • Originally posted by c751bLoVuR:

      As of situations being observed now, we can't film in Bus Int/Ter. Other places should be fine. Here's a sample of what I've filmed on the bus:

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2uFBPaml0s

      There was once when I was at Hougang central bus int copying down regos, the route manager approached and questioned me. Then he said that there was a bunch of ppl like me snapping inside the int and was handed over to the police. I was dam stunned. Luckly he said copying regos is fine =.=
