Also known as the Keppel Road Railway Station or Singapore Railway Station, it was the southern terminus of the Malayan Railway or Keretapi Tanah Melayu, the rail operator in Malaysia.

This came about following an agreement between the Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak and Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on 24 May 2010. The last train leaving Tanjong Pagar was driven by the Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Ismail, who underwent training on how to drive a train specially for the occasion. The Tanjong Pagar Railway Station was designated a National Monument of Singapore on 9 April, 2011.
