Aeropod Train Station
Project to transform the only steam locomotive in Malaysia to the modern train.
The project also upgrade the current train station in Tanjung Aru as transportation hub.
Kota Kinabalu International Airport (IATA: BKI). Main gateway to Sabah, Malaysia (North Borneo) Taken from a nearby ridge:
There was once when Russia was more backward than us......look at the high-speed train that they have now!
There is an explanation for this.
If Malaysia had standard gauge (1,435 mm) built before say....electrified double tracking project (Padang Besar - Johor Bahru) which is considered as upgrade of course, then for sure, our railway line speed will be at least 200 km/h, as in the UK (limited by signalling).
Good point. But before anyone complains about Malaysia's railways, do remember that they were built for the movement of freight - mostly tin - and meter gauge is suitable for freight railways which do not have to move that fast.
being able to move freight at upwards of 100km/h (since a good portion of KTMB's train movements will be freight for a very long time) is a big deal too. :banana:
Railways built by our former british masters were built mainly to pillage our natural resources...so it is not oriented towards people movement!!
But no worrries, the British is going bankrupt :lol:..payback time and we'll see more of them become beggars with deep painful cuts into their welfare system which is as big as our annual budget!!!
