Ipoh Railway Station (IRS)

This grand old dame was the brain child of A.B Hubback, the same public work architect that built the KL Railway Station (KLRS). This is why Ipoh railway station shares a similar design with the KL railway station. In fact, it was said that KLRS is the head of railway while IRS is the tail of the railway.
