Operation of goods trains has always been associated with the working of marshalling yards. Goods trains comprising of wagons destined to different destination stations/yards make their way to the yard as had been planned in the time-table t© be terminated. These wagons will be sorted out to the different sorting lines in the yard awaiting to be formed into the next scheduled train. In the MR all goods trains except liner or company trains carrying cement and oil are being operated on the yard to yard basis. The present 'through goods* train services being operated on the main line are between Padang Besar-Prai, Prai-Kuala Lumpur and Kuala Lumpur-Singapore. The •through goods' train operating between Prai-Kuala Lumpur and Kuala Lumpur-Singapore will by-pass Ipoh yard and Gemas yard respectively. Any detaching and attaching of loaded wagon will be done at the respective stations assisted by a shunting engine. This will not only eliminate unnecessary shunting but also wagons in transit are being kept moving without delay in the yards. On the other hand, shunting goods trains services involved short distance journey and shunting is done at wayside stations.
