This is the first time I’ve been on the new train down Penang Hill. Normally I walk up and down but my friend wanted to go on the train where her car was parked and I have never been so I followed her. The ride takes 4 mins. I have sped up the video.

Enjoy the ride and the view x

A must watch if you have never experienced Penang Hill train ride. The ride down in fast forward is like a rollercoaster.

The ride time:  4.5 mins

Length 1.997 KM : Longest in Asia
Tunnel Gradient 27.9 Degrees : Steepest tunnel in the world
Operational since 1923 but upgraded in 2010

The view is spectacular and the timing is impeccable as another train is seen crossing.
