You can book seats on any of the trains from any ticket counter at any KTMB mainline station.
Advance tickets go on sale anywhere from a couple or weeks in advance, to a few months in advance.
Making a reservation is always advisable as trains in Malaysia can often operate full, especially during the school and public holidays, and also during the many religious festivals that are held at many different times of the year.
An easy way to book your seats is to book your tickets online.
If you book direct from the KTM Berhad official website, tickets usually cost the same as they do from the station ticket counter.
If you use an agent, there is usually a small added admin fee, but the booking process is much easier to use.
Another good reason to book online is you don't have to waste your time and money travelling out to a station.
