I love trains.
it's sad to see elderly at south korea
How will dumping Sin elderly in Msia benefit Sin? Isn't healthcare generating profit ?
Wonder if they also make plans to open aged home in JB for Singaporean????

i cant imagine if a cow strays onto the tracks .....
I dont think the daily volume of traffic is high enough to make sense (compared to China, Japan, HK) and we already have all-day flights, the NorthSouth Highway and buses between these 2 destinations which is going to dilute the numbers further
Heard that they might contract this out to a Japanese or Chinese firm to build and operate with 6 stops between Singapore and KL and an extension to Penang plus more stops in future

shaddap and just shoot .... up close
Kiosks in singapore or JB? So for people taking this train a separate queue? why so difficult if custom can clear fast but make people wait?Originally Posted by ninelives
They did try and have do away with the white form. Next will be just scan, why still need to stamp if scan info already captured?
reported in wan bao the long term goal is to connect all the way to Kunming, China.
Anyway, I foresee the stretch between Singapore and Iskanda to be completed ahead of schedule and the other stretches to be delayed and filled with difficulties.
Hope they award the contract based on reliability and safety records, and not lowest cost.

Supposed to be is different from actual.
If there is corruption, things can be built not to spec and sub-standard materials used.
Why Chiang Kai Shek airport that frequently experiences typhoon had no ground radar? Taiwan is not poor. They got plenty of money to build ground radar. Even the Taiwan President Ah Bian was corrupt. SIA 006 did not have to happen.

If commuters and travellers are swayed over to the HSR through conveniences, hourly departure is hardly impossible.
