    Hi, I’m going to Kl Sentral from Wakaf Bharu next month resulting me asking people here and there about train as travelling option. As this is gonna be my first time so I would like to travel with a peace of mind. I wanna ask whether train Ekspres Timuran route to Gemas offers a stop to Kl Sentral? If it does, what about the ticket price? Is it the same? Thank you so much for your kind respond.
