Train travel is one of the types of transport that I really enjoy. The scenic routes taken by trains often offer views you would never usually see. We spent a day on the old North Borneo Railway (now called the Sabah State Railway) a 134KM stretch of track originally built in the 1890′s. Our day started early, as we wanted to do the full stretch from Kota Kinabalu
to Tenom in a day so that meant we had to catch the earliest service. The service starts from Tanjung Aru station, which is a 10 minute drive from the city. We took a minibus (17A from Waswasan Station at 7am/RM2) although you can easily get a taxi for RM15.
You can easily get all the way to Tenom in a day but there is no train back until the next morning so we booked ourselves in at the Orchid Hotel (RM60 Double Room)
