I think I found this River Paran in Google Maps... Turns out that after flowing underground for a while (probably beneath Jalan Munshi Abdullah), it does indeed reemerge at Kampung Baru, after Jalan Dewan Sultan Sulaiman, as the Bunus River!

you're right! Sg Bunus in turn receives its tributaries from Sg Ayer Panas & Sg Peran which originates from Wangsa Maju & Setapak Jaya catchment areas respectively... though they look (and smell) like large culverts/drains now.
In the old map, the smaller tributary of Paran River from the north, going through District Hospital seems as if it came from Tasik Titiwangsa.

Kg Bunus (after To' Bunus) was the name for Kg Baru in the 19th century.

So now Sg. Paran/Sg. Bunus is a river system without a 'proper' reserve along it's length - wondering is it under DBKL or JPS jurisdiction nowadays ???

They are currently rehabilitating Sg. Bunus upstream near Sri Rampai, Setapak till behind Bernama building near Titiwangsa Park before it goes under Kg. Baru and to reappear meeting Sg. Ampang, below the bridge linking Jln. Bunos and Jln. Ampang.

before the current Central Market was built in 1937

Bridge at right side is now the pedestrian bridge to Dayabumi.
The row of shops at the background were along MacArthur Street.

KL map 1889



red circle: first KL Railway Station
green circle: site of today's KL Railway Station, marked in the map as Proposed New Stn.
blue circle: Residency Station, later known simply as Station for Batu Caves
note Gombak Road all the way to Jln Raja
and the English Church ?

the first KL Railway Station built in 1886 was not at the present site; it was conveniently located right beside the goods yard (Dayabumi),

it was rebuilt in 1910 to the present Mughal-Saracen design.
