Psychological thriller Third Rail's blockbuster set features a life-size tunnel and actual MRT train carriages – perfect for the cast to film some dance TikToks in.

You don’t have to be a train enthusiast to appreciate upcoming new English-language drama Third Rail.

The “third rail” of the title refers to the part of the rail track that supplies a huge amount of electricity to the train, and is also a term for a politically charged issue.With one of the biggest sets ever built in Singapore, filming took place in a rail tunnel specially constructed within a giant event space in Changi housing two actual, decommissioned MRT train carriages.
