Tickets for these high-speed train services can be purchased from any mainline KTM railway station within Malaysia up to 60 days in advance of the departure date.
If you are not in Malaysia you should really book in advance rather than just turn up at Padang Besar Station hoping to get a seat.
You can book tickets online either by using the KTMB website (a small non-refundable booking fee is added) or for a slightly cheaper option, use an online ticketing agent.
The only other KTM train that operates on this route from Padang Besar is the daily Peninsular Express night / sleeper train that originates from Hat Yai Railway Station in southern Thailand and travels all the way down to JB Sentral in Johor.
This is a much cheaper train, but much slower.
You can however get yourselves a nice sleeping berth and sleep most of the way.
This train service is now cancelled from 19th May 2016.
