KTM's services to south to resume by 7pm Sunday

KUALA LUMPUR: Two of KTM Berhad's (KTMB) six train services to the south, which were affected after a cargo train derailed between Layang-layang and Renggam on Friday, are expected to be restored by 7pm Sunday.

KTMB said in a statement the two involved the Ekspress Sinaran Selatan (Woodlands-Sentral Kuala Lumpur) and Ekspress Sinaran Timur (Woodlands-Tumpat).

However, both would begin at the Kluang railway station.

It said the Ekspress Rakyat service (Woodlands-Sentral Kuala Lumpur) resumed operations at 8am Sunday also from the Kluang station.

Three services still remain cancelled - Ekspress Sinaran Selatan (Sentral Kuala Lumpur-Woodlands), Malayan Tiger Train (Tumpat-JB Sentral) and Ekspress Senandung Timuran (Tumpat-Woodlands).

KTMB said the coaches of the cargo train had successfully been shifted and that track repairs were now underway.
