Located in a small town called Gemas, this station, built in 1922 is functional till today as a changeover (stopover) for trains from the North (Butterworth), East Coast (Tumpat and Gua Musang) and the South (Singapore). Other than passenger trains, the station also accommodates cargo trains carrying major commodities such as cement, petrol, rubber and logs.
The station building has maintained its original structure and even now still houses two 1946 model North British Locomotive Company steam engines. If you are into nostalgia, do not miss the opportunity to strike a pose with these steam engines. In case you run into any difficulties, do not hesitate to ask assistance from the Station Master. In charge of all the operations; signalling, locomotive and sales, he will gladly come to your assistance.
If time permits, stay overnight in this small peaceful town. Savour the feel of fresh air in your face, the tranquil peace of the night and enjoy a respite away from the crowded scene of city life. You may also choose to tee-off to a round of golf at the 18-hole Gemas Golf Resort, a mere five minutes drive from the station.
