The Rakyat Express runs daily to KL. The Man in Seat 61 says
"Taking the train is the safe, comfortable & adventurous way to go"but there was't much adventure on my trip. Slow and boring. An skinny elderly chinese man sitting across the aisle flipped the lid on a can of Guinness at 8.30 am and sipped throughout the day from successive cans that appeared from his plastic carry bag which also contained a packet of Ritz crackers, but he only managed to nibble on 2 or 3 of those. He talked non-stop with fluid and expressive hand gestures and his companion seemed content to throw in an encouraging phrase now and again in accompaniment. I could tell she was a lady friend rather than a wife because the encouraging tone didn't wear thin all day, and I wondered if they were off for a dirty weekend in KL, heavens what a thought.
We got into KL Sentral almost an hour late and I saw this is the paper the next day which probably explained the delay
