Drawing of a steam train at the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station. This drawing was made by a Kuala Lumpur street painter based in front of the National Mosque.
But today this marvelous building is only used for commuter and suburban traffic (plus a heritage hotel and office of the Keretapi Tanah Melayu Fans Club). Since 2001, all mainline activities have moved to the modern KL Sentral Station .

At dawn, after on-board passport checks by the Malaysian immigration, the train crosses the Causeway connecting Malaysia and Singapore. A few minutes later the train will stop at Woodlands checkpoint for the Singaporean immigration formalities.Woodlands Checkpoint

From this case, as well as the Woodlands case, I suspect that Singapore is trying to make the train travel as unpleasant as possible, so that eventually KTMB will have to close the line due to lack of passengers. Then, Singapore can take over and develop the station and its grounds.
