First of Class 93 ETS EMUs enters service
The first of the 6-car Class 93 ETS Intercity EMUs built by CSR ZELC has finally entered service last Friday 3 September 2015. ETS 201 began service by operating the 5AM service from Ipoh to Kuala Lumpur Sentral (EG9301). The ETS then operated the 9.30AM KL Sentral to Padang Besar service (EG9208).
The new ETS sports (some) facing seats with tables, a Muslim prayer room, disabled toilet, electrical convenience outlet and ceiling-mounted Passenger Information System (PIS) screens. Arrival at stations are automatically announced by male and female voices which sound familiar. The trains are also equipped with LTE-enabled WiFi throughout but at this stage it has not been turned on yet.
Below are some internal shots of the new trains.
