KUALA LUMPUR: Sultan of Johor Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar today departed Kuala Lumpur in style, by driving a Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB) train back to Segamat.
He left Kuala Lumpur after attending the 240th meeting of the Conference of Rulers at Istana Negara here on Wednesday and Thursday.
KTMB senior manager of marketing (inter-city) Mohd Noordin Kimi recited a ‘doa’ (prayers) before the sultan pulled the train out of the station.
The diesel-electric Blue Tiger locomotive, named “Tanjung Kupang” left the Kuala Lumpur station about 10am.
The sultan is set to drive for 378km and is scheduled to arrive at the Segamat railway station about 4.45pm, where he would then rest in the Royal Coach.
