Sabah State Railway

The Sabah State Railway or Jabatan Keretapi Negeri Sabah (JKNS) is the only railway in East Malaysia, and runs from the capital of Kota Kinabalu to Beaufort and Tenom. Though it is a single, through line, trains operate along the line in three sections, namely Sembulan – Beaufort, Beaufort – Halogilat and Halogilat – Tenom. Through ticketing is adopted throughout the network irregardless of train changes and connecting times.

Please note that due to a severe lack of information regarding the Sabah State Railway, both online and offline, do take the information here with a pinch of salt as things may change suddenly with almost no prior notice, especially with regards to train cancellations and whether the train actually originates from and/or terminates at Sembulan station. I have, however, already done my best to compile and source for the most current and accurate information.
