History[edit] The Gemas
Gemas
station was constructed sometime in 1922 as a hub for trains from Penang, Seremban, and Kuala Lumpur. The station also housed a railyard to store active locomotives, the railyard also has another function as well: a scrapyard for old, broken down locomotives and coaches to be scrapped off as cheap metal. KTM Komuter[edit] Between October 2015 and June 2016 KTM Komuter also served the stretch between Seremban and this station.[1] Passengers to Kuala Lumpur, Batu Caves or Tanjong Malim

are required to switch trains at Seremban station then. Following a rescheduling exercise in July 2016 the Komuter service now ends at Tampin; direct trains all the way to Batu Caves are now possible and passengers are no longer required to change trains at Seremban. KTM ETS[edit] On 10 October 2015 KTM ETS
