In order to make an effort and preserve the country’s rich history of the railway system, Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB) is planning to set up Malaysia’s first train museum in Johor.

Johor health, culture and heritage committee chairman Mohd Khuzzan Abu Bakar said that the museum is still under the planning and research stage.

He said that they will be working closely with the National Museum Department to set up this train museum in Johor.

“This includes updating inventories and recordings, hosting conservation programs as well as restoring all railway historical artifacts that are found at locations throughout Johor and other parts of peninsular Malaysia,” he said during the Johor State Assembly at Bangunan Sultan Ismail in Kota Iskandar.

Mohd Khuzzan said the train museum was expected to be set up in either Kluang district or Johor Baru.
