So what do we know so far?

Design & Engineering:
*6 carriages
*MC-T-M-M-T-MC configuration
*Carriage Length: MC 23700 mm (23.7m), T & C 22800 mm (22.8m)
*Total train length: 138600 mm (138.6m)
*power system 25kV AC at 50Hz
*top speed 140 km/h
*cruising speed 120 km/h

Cabin:
*3 doors per side, per carriage (18 doors per side)
*Full gangway walk-through option
*at least one Ladies Coach (perhaps two? - the M cars?)
*front and side LED destination signage
*interior LCD/LED screen
*Mix of transverse & longitudinal seating

Lead set(s) to arrive in September 2011 with 5 additional sets provided by the end of 2011. Meaning that 1 or 2 trains might be in service by this time next year if T & C goes well....

Any other important details?

Cheers, m

38 + 21 = 59 trains. Which would bring it almost on par with the earlier 66 EMUs KTM service level. But then there were no services to Sg Gadut or Tanjung Malim back then.

What happened to those broken EMU overhaul program?
How many are expected to be brought up to service?
What about those free Japs train needing regauging?

But good to see that they're going with the 6-car trainsets and that KTM stations/halts' platforms can take these trains. Not like that certain project.

Technically, you have to look at it in terms of the number of carriages, not the number of trains.

So (38 x 6) + (21 x 3) = 291
And 66 x 3 = 198

So the increase in carriage numbers is approximately 47% over the original fleet.

And the fleet refurbishment is slowly taking place. I believe that they are waiting until the new trains arrive before they can let the remaining old trains go.

The new trains + refurbished old trains will allow them to get back to 15 minute frequencies and carry 3x the number of passengers as they originally carried.

Which is nice - it will help them progress to 2005. Now what will they do to make up the missing years and get in touch with existing demand?

Actually, we can say that they will be behind by 10 years by the time all the current upgrading projects are complete - because it will be a decade before they add more trains to the 2012 fleet.

Very positive and encouraging news from KTM... though it's 10-15yrs behind HK/SG MTR/MRT, hopefully KTM will deliver the same standard and provide some first class public transportation... BOLEH

Then, KTMB should make a JV to build their own EMUs and Diesel Electric Locos & ELectric Loco to ensure that if thsoe locos or EMU are broken, they can fix them without delay ...

this really surprised me.. the color scheme is so rojak already
KTMB corporate colours used to be blue, white & yellow plus KTM in black.

KTM Komuter colours were always yellow, blue & red plus the black KTM letters - so why not put those colours on the trains? Actually, my question is why have the KTM logo on the front and KTM Komuter on the side? Stick to one logo

Also the KTM Komuter colour scheme reflects the Malaysian flag (also rojak?) & the obvious 1Malaysia logo.
