Postcards From The South

02 February 2016

Lovers, office workers, farmers, foodies, labourers, families and train spotters are amongst the thousands who ride the trains on KTMB's Southern Line every day. Linking the sleepy railway junction of Gemas with Johor Bahru, a ride on the century old line offers an unparalleled adventure of sight and sound. For the uninitiated, a ticket from Kuala Lumpur to Kluang for a taste of the famous railway station canteen's roti bakar and kopi is the perfect weekend getaway.
