View Larger Map
Malaysian Railways has been there since 1885 (the proper one) and subsequently expanded and contracted over the history. The main purpose of the tool above is to give the users understanding the current distribution of the railway network and their status. A specialty of this map it highlights the upcoming railway project lines and old dismantled line. The new ongoing projects would be double tracking and electrification of the West Coast Line and the introduction of mass rapid transit in Klang Valley (shown in the map) The above map is prelude to a full-blown Malaysian Railway Web Application: http://www.arcgis.com/apps/Compare/storytelling_tabbed/index.html?appid=06b52f3e268b4be8b93e13dae9aeecee
I have noted my sources for the datasets and the information gathered for the map on both of the links. I would like to fully acknowledge FMS Railway site (http://history.malayarailway.com/home) on their effort in detailing the expansion of the railway network in Malay Peninsula. I would like to fully credit the KTM Railway Museum in Kuala Lumpur Station for pre WW2 Malayan Railway Network Map (utilized for the digitization of dismantled routes) and Wikipedia for upcoming projects and Sabah Railway Network. Finally, credits to the government and engineering company sites (i.e. Gamuda)

Can you guys could research and fill any gaps for the completion years for some railway networks (i.e. Pasir Gudang Link)?
Can you guys tell me what other interesting railway features I must put in the map?
