Excellent train trip and recommended. Buffet car, air conditioned carriage, luggage racks. Train ran on time. A little more organisation at the station would be helpful in guiding passengers.

eTickets were easy to buy. At the station we changed them paper ones, don't know, if that would have beeb necessary. Train trip went smoothly. The only thing we missed was the carriage service what cones to drinks and small snacks. It was nice surprise, that the train borh depatured and arrived in time. We will recommend train trip in Malaysia to others as well.
