Coming in from the long queue at immigration from my Jetstar Asia 3K287 flight from Singapore to Medan, I headed straight for the Airport Railway Station to hopefully cut close to catch an immediate Railink departure.
The next train departure was at 7.15pm, which was barely 7 minutes from departure.
Heading straight to the information counter to purchase my Railink ticket with my overseas credit card.
Heading straight for the ticket gates with my ticket in hand. No time for relaxing yet.
Scanning my ticket at the ticket gate.
Heading straight for the waiting Railink train from the first door.
Only after boarding the train did I proceed down to look for a favourable seat.

With this, the doors closed behind me, the train ready for departure. That was close.
My ticket for the Railink U33 from Kuala Namu to Medan. You can see that my ticket was only generated at 7.09.55pm, just 5 seconds more than 5 minutes to departure.

The elevated railway station for the Railink seems almost completed.
The elevated station versus the current ground level Railink station.
Due to elevated railway works, the escalator part of the exit is under reconstruction and only the lift was in operation.
Once down, the exit is just in front.
Overall, yet another excellent ride with the Railink, making it just in time for an extremely quick connection from the airport to Medan city in under an hour.
