Abandoned train sets in Ulu Yam don't belong to Prasarana

KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 25): Prasarana Malaysia Bhd on Monday (Oct 25) confirmed that the Light Rail Transit (LRT) train sets, allegedly abandoned in Ulu Yam, Selangor and became the subject of a viral YouTube video recently, are no longer property of the company.

Prasana in a statement said the ownership of the train sets was transferred to China’s electric locomotive manufacturer CRRC Zhuzhou (formerly CSR Zhuzhou) in 2014 as part of the buy-back programme for the purchase of fifty sets of new trains currently being used to operate the Ampang-Sri Petaling LRT Line.

“CSR-Zhuzhou has since confirmed that the train sets were subsequently disposed of and sold in 2016 to a third party, which then stored the trains on private land in Ulu Yam.

"As these are neither Prasarana’s assets nor our responsibility, it would not be appropriate for us to make further comments on the matter,” according to Prasarana in the statement.
