Nice trip

Train was well maintained, clean and bright. But aircon is too cold! Overall the ride is a comfortable one.
train #9203 ETS Platinum, KTM, Jul 18, 2019
Very nice train, pretty new and comfortable. Only the temperature was too low, everybody was freezing. Unfortunately, 59 km north of Kuala Lumpur the train had to stop due to a defect railway track. We had to leave the train and wait for a bus bringing us to Kuala Lumpur. So we arrived with 3 hours delay at the final destination. Anyway, we took it easy...
