ETS (Use as rapid service for inter capital city e.g Seremban-KL-Ipoh-Butterworth-Alor Setar-Arau) plus with Komuter internal system for each states....KTM is moving on right track. Hence, the main target/kpi must be "KTM KOMUTER FIRST" and ETS only just as a supplement

On the fast track to Ipoh
By SARBAN SINGH


SEREMBAN: Rail commuters will be able to travel from here to Ipoh in less than three hours when Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) introduces its inter-city express train service (ETS) from April 1.

The premium service, which will among others have wi-fi services, will only stop at major stations along the way.

A source said KTMB had already received a new set of the trains from South Korea and trial runs were expected to begin in the coming weeks.

“Since the train has a maximum speed of 120kph and is built based on the latest technology, commuters will be able to get from one point to another quicker,” he said.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat is scheduled to launch the service in Kuala Lumpur today.

The source said KTMB would get four more train sets by February.

“Each train will have six coaches which can accommodate some 300 sitting passengers,” he said.

KTMB introduced the normal Kuala Lumpur-Ipoh shuttle service beginning December last year. The journey between Kuala Lumpur and Ipoh takes about three hours.

However, the new train set has a diesel-run locomotive with inter-city coaches.

It is understood that the ETS will, among others, stop at the Nilai/KLIA, Bandar Tasek Selatan, KL Sentral, Tg Malim, Tapah, Kampar and Batu Gajah stations.

With the ETS, the travelling time from Seremban to Kuala Lumpur will be 45 minutes while the KL-Ipoh route will take about two hours and 10 minutes.

The source said the new train set will look like an upgraded version of the present KTM Komuter trains.

“It will have comfortable seats and brightly lit coaches.

“The seats will also be spacious,” he said.

The source said since it was a premium service, commuters must be prepared to pay more to travel on the train.

“This is a departure from the old mode of rail travel.

“We want commuters to feel even more comfortable and to be able to do work while in the train,” he said, adding that the proposed fare had yet to be approved by the Transport Ministry.

It is understood that the service will begin at 5am with the last being at 10pm at two-hour intervals.

Really? With 5 sets, I dunno if that would be possible.

Recently took the Antarabandar from KL Sentral to Singapore and passed the double-tracking work to Gemas. The work really slows down the trains' speed eh? Did that happen for the Ipoh double tracking too? Anyway, Senawang halt has one platform up already with the roofing starting to be built up. Its a pity that they will actually rebuild the Rembau, Tampin, Batang Melaka and Gemas stations. There's no way to simply modernise the stations? Gave a sort of nostalgic feel to the ride. Its not going to be the same much longer. Granted, ETS will be nice, but it will be a thing of the past riding the intercity as it is. Even if the trains and coaches still operate, the stations looking different subtracts away from the overall feel. Will post a few pictures of the double tracking segment when I can. Its mostly earth being moved around and a lot of drainage work going on.

Oh, also... Didn't see this mentioned here. KTM Komuter now stops at Platform 2 and 3 in the Kuala Lumpur station (effective 18 Dec) instead of Platforms 2a and 3a in the Kuala Lumpur station extension. Entry is through the existing entrances but with a rather long walk to the waiting area for the trains. Also, you can't access the platform through the underpass anymore if I'm not wrong. Not even the ramp one.

What happened when Rawang-Ipoh electrified double tracking was under construction...were:

- Ekspres Rakyat (Singapore-Butterworth) was suspended.

- 10-hour line block during construction

I think KTM should (or may) order more ETS to expansion to the south and the north....

I totally agree with u there!That s what i dont understand with KTM ,Its not the stations that care for but get me to where i want to go on time and pronto
As long as the stations are clean and comfortable is good enough,I dont see the europeans or australians spending so much on their stations unless its a major interchange!I will surely miss tampin and gemas station.

KTMB to open tender for 36 EMU trains worth RM2bil

BUTTERWORTH: Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB) expects to open tender for the purchase of 36 electric multiple unit (EMU) trains worth RM2 billion in the next three to six months.

Its President, Dr Aminuddin Adnan, said KTMB was looking at prospective suppliers from international companies in Europe, China and Japan.

"We want to speed up the process as want to acquire the EMU in 2012," he told reporters after a ceremony here on Monday to handover cheques to squatters affected by the Ipoh-Padang Besar doubletrack electric railway project.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat officiated the event where 134 squatters received cash consolation amounting to a total of RM42,000.

On the EMU, Ong said the potential EMU to be purchased would have six compartments.

The present EMU trains used by the railway company come with three compartments.

The EMU train should have a speed of 100-120/kmh, Ong said.

"Apart from buying new EMU trains, we also have to repair and refurbish the existing EMU to ensure comfort for passengers," he said. - Bernama

Great news ever!!

Hopefully, they got good tender from Asian (not from China) maker, Rotem of Korea, Kawasaki-Hitachi and Kinki Sharyo of Japan. European maker have good technology but expensive to maintain.

By the way, after they receive 36 new 6-cars (class 84 i think) trainset in next two years, they can start Komuter Utara by using old 3-cars class 81, 82 or 83. Komuter Selatan maybe after Gemas-JB EDT completed in 2016.

I believe the EMUs would look exactly like the ETS.The ETS manufacturers have manufactured 2 batches of EMUs for KTMB. Marubeni and Rotem are the obvious winners.Not very keen with Chinese EMUs since we already had trouble with their Dalian locos. Not sure about European EMUs, we had good operational history with the Desiro for the ERL.

Government wants all-inclusive maintenance for EMUs
Tuesday January 5, 2010

BUKIT MERTAJAM: The Government wants a comprehensive maintenance approach for KTMB’s electric multiple units (EMUs).

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said besides securing new EMUs, there was a need to refurbish existing units.

He also said that the width of railway tracks in Malaysia was too narrow for high-speed trains travelling at 250kph and above.

“Our tracks are narrower compared to many standard tracks that are being used extensively all over the world. So we cannot expect our trains to move at such a high speed.

“That is not going to be stable,” he said after presenting ex-gratia cheques to some squatters here yesterday.

Ong was responding to Chinese newspaper reports of a proposal to build high-speed maglev tracks.

KTMB president Dr Aminuddin Adnan said it would call for an open tender for the procurement of 38 EMUs within the next three to six months.

He said KTMB wanted to purchase the six-car EMUs, which would cost a total of RM2bil, by 2012 and was looking at countries such as Japan, China and others in Europe for international bidding.

He said the purchase of these new EMUs would double the passenger capacity of KTMB, which currently uses three-car EMUs.

“We are working on a very tight time frame. We hope the trains can be delivered within a period of 18 to 24 months,” he said.

Dr Aminuddin also said that maglev high-speed trains in China were still at its infancy.

“I would rather wait for the second generation trains to come before we seriously look into this. Otherwise, we may be investing in a technology which is still at an early stage.”
