There are only 2 train lines on the peninsula, one is the north-south track (Bangkok-Singapore) and one splits off in Gemas (south of KL) and runs to the north-eastern thai boarder near Kota Bharu. This line is also called the jungle train. The train is pricier and slower then the bus but can be more comfortable when travelling in a sleeper car.

There are currently talks of constructing a bullet train line between Sinpapore and Kuala Lumpur
