YDM4 is a type of locomotive leased to KTMB by Indian Railways. There is quite a number of them in KTMB’s rolling stock. According to the train operator, all locomotives in the rolling stock have their own set of problems, brushing off allegations that YDM4 is among the best locomotive KTMB has ever had.
For KTM Intercity Ekspres Senandung Langkawi service, KTMB uses two YDM4 locomotives because sole unit is does not have sufficient tractive force to pull all other railcars.
So I missed my Skybus shuttle bus to KLIA2. The next bus departs at 3 AM and I am now stranded in KL Sentral for almost three hours.
KL Sentral used to be more interesting than before. Now, there is nothing much to do during midnight. 7-Eleven is the only convenience store that is opened.
#FAIL No. 1: Cheque Deposit Down for temporary? For temporary? For temporary?
Seriously CIMB, who did you hire to be your clerk? I hope they are not your banker.
Apparently, McD is also closed from 12 midnight to 6 AM for “maintenance” purposes. I doubt that. There’s nothing going on in the restaurant (apparently), only loud music can be heard.
#FAIL No. 2: It will be closed until 14 MARCH 2014. Hmmm, are we watching Back to the Future?
#FAIL No. 3: CANNOT BE ACEPTED. Acepted. Acepted. What is acepted? It sounds like “Inception” for me.
#WIN: I have finally found a good place to sit and a table to do my reading and writing. #WIN #WIN #WIN.
Meals Station is a kopitiam-style restaurant in KL Sentral. There is no operating hours stated directly at the outlet. However, it looks like it opens for 24 hours. Cheap drinks mostly start at RM 3.50 so be prepared to pay extra.
Power outlets are also available for those who are seeking to charge their electronic gadgets.
September 19th 2014 – A brief power outage has occured on 1:50 PM in some stations along Kelana Jaya line, causing commuters to be stranded at the stations as the crowd begin to swell as peak travel time draws near. According to statements made by RapidKL, the route between Masjid Jamek and Gombak station was affected by the outage. Fortunately, on 4:01 PM, power has been restored, just in time before workers find their way back home.
Although Kelana Jaya Line now has been equipped with new four-coach trains, congestion during peak periods is still a norm. It is not as bad as KL Monorail though.
During power outage, shuttle buses are being provided by RapidKL. However, the signage is not clear enough, with most of the instructions only comes from twitter.
Inter-service communication was smooth as we can see some notice put up via electronic display at Imbi KL Monorail station. However, when the service backs to normal, the signage was not updated promptly. This may cause confusion to commuters.
[Rasmi] Perkhidmatan LRT Laluan Kelana Jaya telah kembali pulih sepenuhnya.Kpd semua penumpang kami memohon maaf atas kesulitan
Lets see what TNB has to say, via its corporate communications general manager, Omar Sidek:
“TNB would like to clarify that the stalled LRT services earlier Friday was due to switchgear fault at Rapid KL’s end.”
“We deny news reports that burnt TNB cables caused disruption to the LRT services”
While we cannot find conclusive evidence yet on the occurence, we believe some sort of miscommunication took place. We hope that emergency response team of both agencies will be more prepared for problems like this.
Users who book online do not need to show their physical ticket while onboard for inspection. Instead, they just need to show it on their phone screen with their ID (Malaysians: MyKad) for verification.
