KTM Komuter Klang Valley Sector 2012up from Sungai Gadut to Kajang 2
Heading back to KL, I decided to make Kajang 2 my stopover so I can pay a visit to the station. The morning KTM Komuter Klang Valley Sector train frequency of around 30 minutes per train was also convenient enough to do a quick look around and not get stranded for too long if I were to do it after the morning peak period. I caught KTM Komuter Klang Valley Sector 2012up to head back north from Sungai Gadut just as it was about to depart.

Arriving at Kajang 2 Railway Station.
This train set, SCS28, has a Kajang 2 sticker pasted on the dynamic route map display above the train doors. However, the dynamic route map display does not change after departure from UKM all the way to Kajang 2.
Announcements were made manually by the driver, who pronounced the station name in Malay as Kajang Two. This differs from my earlier KTM Komuter Klang Valley Sector 2003dn when the driver pronounced it as Kajang Dua.
Only the northbound platform is in operation on both bounds due to the Klang Valley Double Track Electrification (KDVT) rehabilitation project.

Kajang 2 Railway Station has side platforms as it is an infill station added the existing railway line. The platforms are pleasantly wide with a large roof covering the platforms fully. Despite being covered, the station is still quite airy with the large openings on both ends of the station, along with louvred walls around the platform blocking out the sun while letting in the breeze.
The next train to Sungai Gadut was arriving, with the crossing on the single track done at Kajang, the next station. But with the delay of my KTM Komuter Klang Valley Sector 2012up, this train should be in turn delayed as well due to single track operations.
A linkbridge above the tracks lead to the concourse.
Escalators are available but the up escalator was not working. It’s hard to believe me since this is only a picture, but passengers earlier were walking up while I was taking pictures on the platform.
Thankfully, the lift to and from Platform 2 was in operation.
The staircase is on the other side.

The southbound platform was blocked off as there are no train services operating from it.
Ticket gates are just ahead.
Toilets and Suraus are available at the paid area before the ticket gates.

After a short exploration in and around Kajang 2 Railway Station, I headed back to the platform to catch the next KTM Komuter Klang Valley Sector 2014up train to KL Sentral.
