Mainline Train to Malaysia

Details and contact information on the regular rail connections between Singapore Island and mainland Malaysia...

In Malaysia, the long-distance railway mainly runs on single-track past palm plantations and jungle. Trains in Malaysia and Thailand run on metre-gauge track, narrower than European standard gauge.

There is one mainline station in Singapore, Woodlands Train Checkpoint, with a service that runs directly to Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Bangkok. It is owned and run by Malaysian Railways.

Singapore to Bangkok: The journey by train is 1,946 Km (1,249 miles) and takes about 48 hours. Departures are daily, and trains have comfortable sleeping-berths. Change trains at either Kuala Lumpur and Butterworth or Kuala Lumpur and Hat Yai.

Eastern and Oriental Express

The Eastern & Oriental Express (E&O) is a luxury tourist train for holiday and sightseeing trips. Journeys depart from Singapore's Woodland Railway Station and include sightseeing tours in Malaysia, Thailand and Laos. The E&O runs special promotions at various times of the year.
