Shuttle Timuran 56up from Pasir Mas to Tumpat by 61 Class DMU
Heading in to Pasir Mas Railway Station.
The ticketing area was surprisingly quiet, perhaps there are not much passengers due to the holidays.
As I still had about 20 minutes to my train, I decided to get a drink from the canteen while waiting.

Making a brief stop at Kampung Kok Pasir Railway Halt.
Arriving at Tumpat Railway Station, the last station of the line.
Passing by the future Tumpat turntable.
The old Tumpat turntable was previously located just after the level crossing accessed from the depot, but the new lines leading to the future DMU sheds require the space which the old Tumpat turntable was on.
The empty rake of Ekspres Khas Keluarga Malaysia 1028up had already been shunted to the yard.
Heading out of Tumpat Railway Station.
I had wanted to snap a photo of DMU12 from the level crossing but the horn sounded very quickly and the level crossing was closed to start shunting.

After this shunting process, I took a short walkaround before heading for dinner.
The level crossing will be further expanded once the new lines to the new DMU sheds are ready, along with a proper hut for the gate man.
There is a sign describing the contract of the ongoing works in Tumpat depot.
Overall, the 61 Class DMU is a very comfortable way to travel along the East Coast Line especially when factoring in the very low subsidised fares to cater to the locals. This half an hour ride costed me only RM1 which is the cheapest yet most comfortable transport option in Kelantan based on distance, comfort, and speed.
