ETS at Ipoh Railway Station

Yesterday I sent off my BIL and SIL to Taiping. They had been with us in Ipoh since last Sunday. From Taiping, they will be in Penang and then off to Sabah.

I will get to see them again this Sunday when we get together for a grand dinner.

So there I was at the Ipoh Railway Station wanting to get a close look at the ETS.

ETS - Electric Train Services

ETS started its operation on the 12 August this year.

It takes less than 2 hours to reach KL from Ipoh.

Both my BIL and SIL took the KTM to Taiping.
Ipoh is the last stop for the ETS.
In future, ETS would go further north.

My BIL asked the station master and he was told to walk over to the opposite platform.

I was lucky to have a close up of these two ETS.

See..I hopped in the ETS and quickly hopped off.

view from the overhead bridge

Ok, we took the lift to the bridge.

Then we took the escalator down to the platform.

I captured this view while I was on the escalator.

I had a clearer view of the ETS from this platform.

Finally, the KTM train arrived and both my BIL and SIL got into the train.

After a short while, the train left.

Have a nice time in Taiping, Penang and Sabah..
my dearest BIL n SIL.

Will see both of you again soon before you leave for Sydney.
