The last time I travelled in a Malaysian train was probably 20 years ago, and much has changed since. So it was with much anticipation that I looked forward to a renewal of ties with Kereta Api Tanah Melayu (KTM).
The pleasant thing if you are a senior is that even foreigners are entitled to half-price tickets. To Taiping it cost me RM $30 or about S$13. I really appreciate KTM's generosity especially in these hard times. Terima kasih KTM.
Though the train, Express Rakyat, has seen better days it was clean and the toilet s didn't smell. This is not by accident as I observed cleaners going about their chores, ensuring there is cleanliness throughout the train.
