From May 2016, a new KTMB Padang Besar to Seremban route has started operating.
These new long distance ETS Train services are limited stop ETS Platinum or Gold Services.
Currently there are just a few trains a day that travel past KL Sentral as the line to JB Sentral has yet to be upgraded.
When the line is complete, there will be more departures a day.
New ETS Timetable valid from the 1st of December 2019 into 2020.

Tickets for these high-speed train services can be purchased from any mainline KTM railway station within Malaysia in advance of your departure date (booking periods can vary quite considerably depending on schedule changes and when KTM decide to release seats fro sale - sometimes you can only book a couple of weeks in advance, sometimes a few months in advance).
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, or for a much easier booking process, use an online ticketing agent.
If you want an alternative way to travel from Padang Besar to Seremban by train, you could take the KTM Komuter services from Padang Besar to Bukit Mertajam, where you can connect to trains on the Butterworth to Gemas route (stopping at Seremban).
