Went onto the North Borneo Railway Steam Train for the 1st time.
It is priced at RM250 per person (without land transfer to and from the Tanjung Aru Railway Station unless you are staying at Sutera Pacific Hotel or Sutera Magellan Resort)
Although the 1st impression was the cost is really expensive to go up a train for few hours ride. But when we got there, we realise that it is value for money depending how much you appreciate what North Borneo Railway has to offer.
The experience of an unforgettable journey down the memory lane with the steam train, sights, sounds and smell (smoke) is just not to be missed. Some of you especially the locals might prefer to go on the train without a Tour guide, but if you are a tourists and wish to understand better on the history of North Borneo Railway and what can be found in the 2 small town that we stopped at, I highly recommend hiring a knowledgeable tour guide / engaging a travel agency for this tour.
