Projek Keretapi Kita began in 2016 to document the Southern Line between Gemas and Tanjong Pagar. The completed project has been published and is now available here.

The main objectives of the project is to:

  • Create a Malaysian Railway Archive where artefacts, documents, photographs, and memories of the railways can be stored and made accessible.
  • Nurture a regional network of similar initiatives around Southeast Asia, enhancing bilateral cooperation in the field of heritage preservation, research and documentation.

In 2020, Mahen Bala is travelling across Java and Japan to study the relationship between people and railway heritage in Japan and Southeast Asia. Find out more about the project here
