Train was on time and immigration fast to check documents,

Train was delayed for over 10 minuten, despite it being a 5 minute trip. Just barely made my connection at JB Sentral. Don't take the shuttle if you want to catch the morning train to Gemas, as it's not reliable enough. Immigration was pretty smooth otherwise. You do need to exchange your e-ticket for a real one at the counter first, which also has a line, despite the e-ticket being fine for all other KTM trains so far.

Instructions on where to pick up is not clear. The second pass we transited in JB is dirty, smelly!

The bus ride was smooth and fine... However apparently the type of journey I bought was not available anymore, hence i paid more than the cost of the bus ride (TS1).
