KTM Komuter Klang Valley Sector 2014up from Kajang 2 to KL Sentral
After my short exploration in Kajang 2 Railway Station, it’s time to quickly head to KL with the morning peak frequency so as to either not get stranded for too long or end up catching a bus over to Kajang Railway Station. The next train to KL Sentral was KTM Komuter Klang Valley Sector 2014up.
Heading back to the ticket gate.
The linkbridge to the northbound platform is just ahead.
Toilets and Suraus are available in the paid area.
The southbound platform was blocked off as there are no train services operating from it.
Platform 2 serves trains on both bounds.
Heading down the working escalator. The up escalator was not working.
I got to the platform just in time with 2 minutes to departure.
Northbound route information is displayed on the platform sign.
Waiting for 2 minutes and the KTM Komuter Klang Valley Sector 2014up train is not here yet.
Ah, finally. Here comes the train.

Making a long stop at Salak Selatan Railway Station for crossing on the single track sector.
The railway line between Sungai Buloh and Bangi is now single-tracked thanks to the Klang Valley Double Track Electrification (KDVT) rehabilitation project. My KTM Komuter Klang Valley Sector 2014up needed to wait at the platform (loop line) for scheduled crossing with the opposing KTM Komuter Klang Valley Sector 2019dn train.
You’d think this kind of crossing operation would only exist on rural lines, but nope, it’s the main trunk railway line in Malaysia.
KTM Komuter Klang Valley Sector 2019dn passes through on the up main line and does not stop at Salak Selatan Railway Station. From the north, there is a gap of around 4.5 hours without train services directly to Salak Selatan Railway Station.
As an alternative, passengers can use the Rapid KL LRT Sri Petaling Line via Salak Selatan LRT Station located about 700 meters away (10 minutes) by foot.
