Shuttle 84up: Wakaf Bharu to Tumpat by Local Train (20 December 2011)

Shuttle 84up from Wakaf Bharu to Tumpat

Shuttle 84up was a local shuttle train plying on the KTM East Coast Line. As there was still about a 2-hour wait in Wakaf Bharu Railway Station before the scheduled departure of Senandung Wau 29dn, I was given an option to board Shuttle 84up from Wakaf Bharu to Tumpat and start my journey to KL Sentral from Tumpat instead.

More trains = more fun so I took that option without needing to consider anything.

Passing by the home signal with an amber signal, owing to the end of line ahead.

This journey on Shuttle 84up is very significant for me as this marks the first time I visited Tumpat, the first time I’ve taken a Shuttle train on the East Coast Line, and finally reached the end of the East Coast Line.

Here, I watched some shunting before it was time to depart again by Senandung Wau 29dn. Time flies when you’re having fun trainspotting at Tumpat.
