Train from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur

Hello!

I am travelling to Singapore on January 29th 2014 and, after some days there, I am planning to go to Kuala Lumpur. I kind of prefer to make a 6 hours trip on the train and get some interesting vistas instead of the usual one hour flight. So.... does anybody know whether the train from Singapore woodlands to Kuala Lumpur is still working? If "yes", is it possible to buy tickets online from abroad or in Singapore?

Thank you!

You can even take a bus, which is much more easier to take and takes lesser time, besides costing less.

Really, the plane gives much better views. Even the bus has a better view than the train ( unless you like to see nothing but rubber trees). The overnight sleeper train makes better sense though as you save 1 night hotel costs.

The train still runs, but it's a pretty bad way to travel. Cheap, but bad.

Why exactly is the train bad?

It takes a long time, lots of stops, limited trains per day and no real view.
