[SMRT] Alstom Movia R151 [823/824] – Do Not Board at Expo (CGL)

Filmed on 6th May 2023

FINALLY, 823/824 does a full line EWL daylight test. Even better, this is the first appearance of an R151 testing on the Changi Branch Line! It looks incredibly futuristic to see an R151 at Expo station, with Expo’s unique design and the R151’s unique features.

The interior has all the plastic wrapping and equipment removed, hopefully signifying a debut soon!

This train travelled from Tuas Link to Tanah Merah, then to Changi Airport, back to Tanah Merah and on to Tuas Link.
