(Port Dickson Branch) Seremban - Port Dickson (214)
Stations and views along the Port Dickson branch, not including Seremban station.

This branch was opened in 1891. Starting in the mid 1960s with the opening of the Esso oil refinery, it found its importance as part of KTMB's revenue generator in transporting oil to the old Subang Airport and Ipoh.

A large realignment exercise took place between 1971 and 1977 that basically straightened out the treacherous nature of the original 1891 line. Opened in 1977, this saw closure of the old Siliau station, as well as Kuala Sawah, Sirusa, and Sungai Salak.

This line is currently closed and not in use following the derailment of a freight train transporting oil from the Port Dickson refinery near Kuala Sawah on 11 July 2008. There is a lot of talk to revive the line for passenger services, with the strongest request coming from the state government. This proposal is being studied by the MOT.

The line was temporarily severed by IRCON at the start outside Seremban to facilitate the construction of the Seremban - Gemas double tracking project. It is currently being reconnected, though as explained above, the future fate of the line itself is not clear.

In 2012, tracks near the Tapis Minyak station were dismantled.

Woodlands - Singapore (Tanjong Pagar) (4)
Part of the mainline spanning all the way from Butterworth, this 24km stretch was closed to traffic on 1 July 2011, as part of a historic land-swap deal between the Governments of Malaysia and Singapore. Tracks would be dismantled within a month from closure, while Bukit Timah and Singapore Tanjong Pagar stations are slated for preservation.
