hahaha at least it was in Bangsar. Maybe they should build a KTM station there so people could at least have the option to switch to LRT.

Alternatively, a KTM station at Abdullah Hukum would be a possibility.

A few companies proposed running electric commuter train service in JB, improving the existing KTM lines aroud Johor Bahru.

Well, i think ultimately, KTM must be involved in the running of the service, because it is logical to do so, in terms of operation and maybe in future, intercity electric train service from KL to south.

Report ready soon on rail link to Kuantan, Kuala Terengganu

KUANTAN: Travel to Kuantan and Kuala Terengganu by train may be possible, if the Government agrees to the construction of a railway track from the Klang Valley through to Mentakab, Kuantan, Kuala Terengganu and Tumpat, Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri said here.

He said a report of a study on the proposed project by a consultant, HSS Integrated Sdn Bhd, was expected to be ready in March and would provide a description of the possible future transportation infrastructure in the East Coast.

"The East Coast route is a comprehensive network not only for cargo but for passengers as well. There is no railway route to Kuantan, Kuala Terengganu and Kota Baru.

"There is a need for the facility due to the active economic activities there," he told reporters after a working visit to the Kuantan Port here Wednedday.

On the Ipoh-Padang Besar electrified railway double-tracking project, he said it was 50% complete. - Bernama
With this line, it will help increase the rail coverage to the other part of peninsular Malaysia, which is currently underserved, due to the fact the Kuantan, one of largest east coast city is not served, and there is the potential of freight such as Kuantan port.

The challenge would be tunneling, especially across Titiwangsa mountain range. Long tunnels needed, with gentle gradient to enable relatively fast train travel across the tunnel.

It is important for the line to be built as double track, as it will help rail travel to be faster than expressway. Electrification should come second, although clearly, electric operation is very useful in mountainous section. Best if it is built similar to Rawang-Ipoh/ Ipoh-Padang Besar project (electrified double track).

Considering the possible cost, especially the tunnel, it would be better if the tunnel is built not just for metre gauge, but also to be able to fitted with another rail, to make it dual gauge (metre + standard gauge), so that the tunnel will be future-proof. This has been done in Seikan tunnel, Japan when the tunnel is designed to accommodate Shinkansen, even though initially, the tunnel is for narrow gauge operation (140 km/h for passenger trains).

no problem..the Swiss just finished building a rail line righ through under the Alps..apelah sgy G.Titiwangsa.
Nothing is impossible nowadays.

Abdullah Hukum is more suitable as there is a low cost housing which i believe has at least 1000 occupants.

I've already posted to TRANSIT about the topic.

If accepted, then KTMB would not be responsible for the Electrification and Double Tracking of the rail line from Pasir Gudang to Tanjung Pelapas. The concessionaire would build and transfer the service to KTMB.

And instead of facing the challenge of operating a 'komuter selatan' service (with all the PR problems that it entails), KTM can just focus on intercity (which is heavily subsidized) and freight. The concessionaire would operate the Komuter service for 20 years.

It's also possible that the concessionaire would expand to provide short-line freight services (from port to port) leaving KTM to deal with the long-distance and international freight.

It certainly would simplify things for KTMB.

And it looks like the future for KTM is in long distance, not local services.

Cheers, m

yeah...the problem with Abdullah Hukum is that Angkasapuri is too close.

Frankly, I'd be happy to see them extend the platform from Angkasapuri north to Abdullah Hukum and call it one station.

From Ipoh to Batu Caves

Cost : RM 30

Stops in between : Batu Gajah - Kampar - Tapah Road - Sungkai - Slim River - Tanjung Malim

Note : After Tanjung Malim, the train travels straight to Batu Caves!

Ipoh-Batu Caves ETS



Tapah Road


View of the countryside in Perak from ETS (speed : around 140 km/h)


Tanjung Malim (the last stop before heading straight to Batu Caves


Train making a turn to left from north to the Sentul-Batu Caves line (location : Batu Junction)


Arrived at Batu Caves (the same train was at this station for next departure to Ipoh at around 7 o'clock or so)






In all, it was a great ride. Connectiong Ipoh and Batu Caves, in future, hopefully.......Butterworth to Batu Caves.

From the train, i can see the curiosity, especially people living beside the track looking at the ETS, while travelling on Sentul-Batu Caves line.

I believe they are already using one of the ETS trains on the Komuter Batu Caves - Port Klang line during peak hours.

Hey i noticed KTMB made a smart move long ago to electrify the network with 25kHz AC, the same as most HSR networks around the world. I'm thinking this would be good in the event that a HSR is to be integrated with the current metre gauge network.

However, would variable gauge axles be a possbility, as they have in Spain? The reason I ask is because the difference in gauge between standard and metre is quite considerable. I know they have experimented with this it in japan, but unfortunately, it didn't work.

Or would Pendolinos on the current network be the beter option, seeing as the network from KL down to Singapore looks like it would eventually be double tracked and hopefully electrified?

The plan as it stands currently for Malaysia is that, if high speed rail is going to be built, it will entirely separate from the existing metre gauge network. The proposed KL-Singapore high speed rail line for example, will have separate infrastructure of which the HSR rolling stock will be kept for the use only in HSR tracks.

Regardless of HSR, the double tracking and electrified of existing metre gauge line has long being planned, way before the KL-Singapore HSR being proposed.

The Klang Valley (the term for greater Kuala Lumpur) lines were double tracked and electrified in early 1990's to provide commuter rail service around Kuala Lumpur and its environs.

After Klang Valley, the northern section (Rawang-Ipoh) was the next section being electrified and double track, with freight and long distance express trains in mind.

Currently, the electrified double tracking projects are being implemented on northern sections such as (Ipoh-Padang Besar) and southern section such as (Seremban-Gemas), all with freight and long distance commuting in mind.

Regardless of the progress of HSR, electrification and double tracking of metre gauge lines will continue

About the choice of 25 kV AC for metre gauge lines, i am not sure of the exact reasons, but i doubt it has anything to do with future HSR running to existing metre gauge lines via variable gauge axle system because, as i mentioned earlier, HSR will be entirely separate.

25 kV AC is technically superior because it has longer distance between substations and the fact that the project was being implemented in 1990's, there is no reason for us to go for DC

Ribuan penumpang KTM Komuter terkandas

2011/02/09

KUALA LUMPUR: Ribuan penumpang perkhidmatan KTM Komuter terkandas di semua stesen selepas bekalan elektrik untuk semua laluan terputus selama 30 minit sejak 6.35 petang tadi.

Menurut pengumuman Kereta Api Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB), gangguan bekalan elektrik itu disebabkan talian kuasa berhampiran Stesen Putra terputus.

Bagaimanapun, perkhidmatan di semua laluan kecuali ke Rawang dan Batu Caves pulih seperti biasa mulai 7.05 malam tadi.

Komuter KTMB Tergendala Dari Laluan Bank Negara Ke Rawang Dan Batu Caves

KUALA LUMPUR, 9 Feb (Bernama) -- Perkhidmatan Komuter Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB) bagi laluan Bank Negara ke Rawang dan Batu Caves dihentikan sementara berikutan kabel perkhidmatan itu putus di KM 383.9 berhampiran Pusat Dagangan Dunia Putra (PWTC) di sini.

Pegawai Kanan Koperasi Korporat KTMB Mohd Fazil Ismail berkata perkhidmatan itu tergendala sejak pukul 6.35 petang dan hanya beberapa laluan masih boleh digunakan.

"Laluan yang tidak bermasalah iaitu dari Kuala Lumpur ke Pelabuhan Klang dan Kuala Lumpur ke Seremban. Kita telah sediakan perkhidmatan tren ulang alik kepada para penumpang dari kedua-dua hala iaitu Rawang ke Kepong sehingga kerja membaik pulih siap," katanya ketika dihubungi Bernama.

Beliau berkata kerja-kerja membaik pulih kabel perkhidmatan itu sedang giat dijalankan dan dijangka siap secepat mungkin.

"Saya percaya kerja-kerja membaik pulih yang kita sedang jalankan ini akan siap menjelang tengah malam ini dan akan mula beroperasi Khamis pagi," katanya.
