Any photo of the new Butterworth station? How does the new headhouse would have looked like?

Maybe this question was asked b4, but what the hell..
When I took a ride on KTM be it Komuter or Express Antara Bandar, why is the train wobbling or swaying in motion which I dont notice this happening on LRT or ERL. Is it due to the width of the rails or the ground supporting the rails is uneven?

Do you guys think a Pan Borneo railway line running across Sarawak, Brunei and Sabah will be feasible? It would certainly help with trade.

I'd think it a better idea than a Pan Borneo expressway, simply because locals needn't rely as much on road transport.

Will Etihad do a bacon sandwich for that price? I didn't think so.

tullamarine I don't think Etihad (or Emirates for that matter) will do a bacon sandwich at any price!!! Qantas customers on Sydney/Melbourne-London lost bacon from the breakfast menu following the Emirates alliance.

BaconButty I finally understand the true horrors of globalization.

On contrary, Pan Borneo Highway is more needed compared to Pan Borneo Railway at this stage since locals do depend on it and the fact is much of cargoes within Sabah and Sarawak are transported on roads.

I am not sure the case for Sarawak railway, but Sabah railway could be expanded further.

Why haven't they upgraded to Standard Gauge?

The reason is:

- There is significant freight traffic from Thailand which also uses metre gauge
- Significant cost on replacing rolling stocks just for regauging

The future of standard gauge in Malaysia for long distance traffic could be building separate standard gauge network as in Japan, Taiwan...

Why was Standard gauge chosen for the KLIA Transit?

My guess is that ERL service is not under KTMB and does not shares the same route (nor the infrastructure and the rolling stocks) as KTMB. ERL line was built much later than KTMB lines (which they inherited from the colonial era) and naturally, they would, and did, opt for standard gauge.

As explained above, the cost of regauging Malayan Railway KTM network into standard gauges will be monumental.

It is more feasible to develop new train system employing standard gauges as it is totally separated from the KTM network.

In fact all the LRTs and the MRTs are using standard gauges.
