The only thing is I have never seen what it looks like. Any photos?

it's just a normal KTM train in economy 2 + 2 seating config.

currently i think its 3 trips per day so now increase to 7. that's all.

Oh. Not new train sets. How many carriages/coaches per train?
It's probably more expensive to run the service than having the old rail-buses.

Any news on how to book? Its seems that every slot is full when I checked.

Dun think can book for shuttle train? Usually have to buy on the spot? Last time it cost $11 from woodland to jb.

It does not make any economic sense for KTM, running their usual train-sets.

We shall wait for more news, by taking train can save alot time on the causeway so if the price is reasonable. It will be a hit i supposed.
