KL Train Station information
Opened with much pomp and circumstance in 1911 to receive trains from Butterworth and Singapore, KL’s old train station, another of AB Hubbock’s Moorish-inspired fantasies, is a wonderful confection of turrets and towers. In 2001, the station was replaced as the city’s main transport hub by KL Sentral. Today the platforms are mainly used for KTM Komuter trains to the suburbs and further afield to Seremban and Ipoh. It’s looking dishevelled and forlorn, but it’s still worth coming here to imagine the glory days.
The station's fanciful architecture is mirrored by the Malayan Railway Administration Building across the road.
