Train travel in Malaysia
West Malaysia has two long distance train lines. The busiest of these two train lines is the West Coast Train Line which runs from Padang Besar Railway Station, near to the border with Thailand, southwards to Johor Baru where passengers can catch a shuttle train to Singapore. The West Coast Train Line passes through major stations such as Butterworth Railway Station (for ferry services to Penang Island), Ipoh and Kuala Lumpur. Direct services from Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bharu have ceased operating. For travel south to Johor Bharu passengers need to change trains at Gemas to a Southern Shuttle Service, which operate 4 times a day from Gemas to Johor Bharu. The West Coast Train Line also connects with branch lines to Port Klang and Port Dickinson, as well as suburban line operating out of KL Sentral Station to Kuala Lumur International Airport, and other destinations in the Klang Valley area including the Batu Caves.
The East Coast Train Line runs from Tumpat, in the north of peninsular Malaysia, to Gemas where passengers can change to train services on the West Coast Train Line. There is a single daily train service, the Ekspress Rakyat Timuran, which travels all the way from Tumpat to Johor Bharu. This is a sleeper train which is popular with train enthusiasts as it passes through mountainous remote areas. The East Coast Train Line is also known as the ‘Jungle Line’ for this reason. The journey from Tumpat to Johor Bharu is scheduled to take 17 hours 10 minutes and travels overnight. A popular option for passengers travelling from Thailand is to take the train to Sungai Kolok Railway Station and then travel by road to Kota Bharu to join the Ekspress Rakyat Timuran at Wakaf Bharu Railway Station, which is located 6.6 km to the west of Kota Bharu town centre.
