“Feel The Need For Speed...”


ETS stands for Electric Train Service is an inter-city rail service operated by Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad utilizing electric multiple units. It is the fastest metre gauge train service in Malaysia that currently operates along the electrified and double-tracked stretch of the West Coast Line between Gemas and Padang Besar on the Malaysia-Thai border by the Malaysian national railway operator, Kereta Api Tanah Melayu.


The trains travel up to 140 km/h (87 mph) on electrified metre gauge rail line which can be considered as higher speed rail based on passenger rail terminology instead of high speed rail. However these services use the 1,067mm (3 ft 6 in) gauge.
