Some shots during my last visit to Jakarta's Gambir Station few weeks ago. Pardon for the quality.

A bustling friday night at Gambir Station. It seems like many Jakartans going out of town for a weekend.

Just put your booking code or scan your itinerary barcode.



I took train 46 a.k.a. SEMBRANI EXPRESS bound for Surabaya.


Waiting for the train 46 at platform #4.


Train 38 bound for Bandung at platform #1


This is it. Train 46 arrived at platform #4

Indonesian banks agree loans to fund new trains
Friday, November 14, 2014





FOUR Indonesian banks have agreed to lend the country's national railway PT Kereta Api Rupiahs 2.38 trillion ($US 195.5m) to help increase capacity on the Jabodetabek commuter rail network serving Jakarta and neighbouring cities

The railway wants to double the number of passengers using the Jabodetabek network from 600,000 per day to 1.2 million by 2019. To do so, it will need to expand its fleet from 860 cars to 1440 and extend station platforms to handle 10-car trains. At present, station platforms are only long enough for eight-car trains, but there are some stations in eastern Jakarta which can only accept five-car trains.

Meanwhile, on November 13, PT Kereta Api introduced a new diesel passenger service on the 32km line linking Mojokerto with Sidoarjo south of Surabaya in eastern Java. Six round trips a day are provided with trains taking 50 minutes to complete the trip. The line has two intermediate stations, including Tulangan (pictured below).

There was an article recently in the Asahi newspaper about the KRL system that shedded more light on the situation. Apparently second hand rolling stock costs 1/10 of new rolling stock per unit, so this infusion of funds should help greatly in increasing the inventory. They are aiming to add 700 more units, probably ex-JR East 205 types.

The railway does face challenges though- only 3% of the population in the Jakarta metropolitan region commute by rail. Though the six city metro area is more than twice the size of the 23 wards of Tokyo, there are only 64 stations on the network, compared to Tokyo's more than 500. This makes access by the general population to stations as well as transfers from buses problematic and reduces motivation to switch to rail from autos and motorbikes.

Government seeks to accelerate Trans-Sumatra railway project
01 Dec 2014



INDONESIA: President Joko Widodo has reconfirmed the government’s commitment to construction of a 2 168 route-km railway across the island of Sumatra, linking three disparate 1 067 mm gauge networks.

Outlining the government’s infrastructure priorities for the 2015-19 period, Widodo said on November 27 that a feasibility study for the initial sections of the new railway between Lampung and Aceh would be undertaken next year, with a view to construction beginning before the end of 2015. According to the National Development Planning Board, the railway would share its alignment as far as possible with the Trans-Sumatra toll road, construction of which began near Medan in October last year. NDPB hopes that the 65tr rupiah railway could be completed by 2025.

The first section of railway to be built is likely to be between Pekanbaru and Dumai in Riau province, where land could be procured for both the road and railway together. However, around 15 km of track has been relaid around the port of Lhokseumawe on the alignment of the former Medan – Banda Aceh railway closed in the 1970s; this is reported to be operational, as are some sections of the network around Medan, including a 26 km line to Kuala Namu airport

A few weeks ago, the Minister of Trading, Rahmat Gobel is considering to utilize the train more, to keep the cost stability of the food and people basic needs.
In my opinion, it's not just PT KA that should be involved in this matter. Plantations should utilize the railway more, by re-introducing plantation railway such as those in sugar mills.

This is a good example.

Indonesia shelves high-speed project
Thursday, January 22, 2015



INDONESIA's transport minister Mr Ignasius Jonan announced on January 22 that proposals to build a high-speed line linking the country's two largest cities have been put on hold for at least five years

A feasibility study funded by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) was carried out last year on the 750km Jakarta - Surabaya route. However, despite offers of financial assistance from the Japanese government, Jonan says the projected Rs 150 trillion ($US 12bn) cost is beyond the means of the state budget

There is something that tickles my curiousity...

On a night, i was residing somewhere in bogor. i heard a Whistle from a CC206 Loco at specific time of day, from the nearby Bogor-Sukabumi line that recently activated for the freight and passenger service.

The problem is, how could this possible with the fact that i can't even see the rails, nearly 1Km away, barricaded by dense houses and hills?.

Does there any regulations exist about the sound levels for train whistles? or maybe quiet zones like in the US where Train Whistles are prohibited? or do we need such laws and regulations?

And, i think i only heard whistles since the CC206s are passing there, there was no those heard-from-nowhere whistles from the MCW Bumi Geulis era. Does this Loco Class indeed have a "special" whistle.

Reply appreciated!

n.b. Saya ragu thread ini ID atau EN, jadi saya pakai EN instead. Mungkin balasnya bisa bebas. Thanks.

China backs Jakarta – Bandung high speed proposal
24 Apr 2015







INDONESIA: On the fringes of the Asian-African Summit on April 22, President Joko Widodo and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping witnessed the signing of a memorandum of understanding for the two countries to co-operate on the development of a high speed line between Jakarta and Bandung.

Provisionally costed at US$6·7bn, the high speed line forms one of a number of infrastructure projects in various sectors covered by the memorandum. A Japanese-led pre-feasibility study in 2011 had examined the viability of the proposed 144 km route, which would offer an end-to-end journey time of approximately 45 min. Currently national operator PT KAI’s locomotive-hauled services over the 170 km conventional line take around 3 h

If any of you (non-Indonesian people) wonder why they put steel mesh in locomotive's windows, its because some Indonesian people like to throw objects into moving train, for whatever reason. This can be extremely dangerous.
This habit exist since the birth of train in Indonesia.
When Indonesian have 350km/h bullet train, even throwing small stones can be catastrophic.
