Currently, if you want to travel from Kempas Baru to KL Sentral by train you have a choice of either:
1) Taking a Shuttle train to either Gemas or Tampin, then connect to the ETS services from there to KL.
2) Take a Shuttle to Tampin, then take a KTM Komuter (commuter) train from there to KL. This is by far the cheapest way to travel from Kempas Baru to KL, but the journey takes quite a bit longer.
