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. The ETS train schedule in Malaysia can be categorized into the Gemas – Padang Besar and Padang Besar – Gemas routes.
