Let's says there are ten departures from KL to Singapore everyday, and ten in the opposite direction.  Each carries an average of 200 passengers.  Each passenger pays 50 MYR one way.

50 MYR/passenger x 200 passengers/train x 20 trains/day x 365 days/year x 10 years = 0.730b MYR

Assuming the cost of construction, equipment and ten years of operation is only 5b MYR, which is already a grossly underestimated figure, it takes about 68 years to recoup that cost.  Inclusive of interest, and by making the figure a little more realistic, and assuming it is run without profit, it should probably be at least 20b MYR, which takes 272 years to recoup.  To recoup it in 27.2 years, which is possibly more reasonable, the ticket price may have to be multiplied by ten, making it 500 MYR/passenger one way.

You think that the gomen will let that train butcher MAS or Air Asia?

It is gonna be more than 50 bucks buddy.

Maybe at least 300 or 400 per one way...
