Brisk ticket sales before final train leaves KTM station
By Hoe Yeen Nie, TODAY, 23 Jun 2011.
As the day of the last KTM train pulling out of the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station draws near, sales of tickets for Malaysia-bound trains departing from the station have been brisk.
At the station yesterday, all the seats for the 8am and 1pm trains were sold out and tickets for today were reportedly gone within half an hour.
Said Mr Teo Juay Tee, who was among the lucky ones to secure a ticket: “I came four times to try to get one and, on the fourth try, I got lucky. I’m already 27-years- old and I’ve never taken the train before, that’s why I’m here to try it out.”
