I think Indonesia is only behind Malaysia in this sense...nobody else in ASEAN has a better network. I've been on all of them (where they exist, nothing in Brunei and Singapore doesn't count since they only have a subway) except for the Filipino network (which judging by what I've seen on SSC is years away from being even half-decent) and only Vietnam and Thailand are sort of comparable...the Argo trains are quite nice!

Location : Lahor Bridge,Karangkates-East Java.
Train set : MATARMAJA

by Ian Antono-RP.net


This is an economy class long haul trainset.The routes of this trainset is Jakarta-Malang, VV via Semarang.
it's so "economical-train" since the ticket price is only less than USD 5.00 for 14 hours trip.
btw,look closely at the picture,an eagle fly across the bridge.nice view!

The History of PT.Kereta Api (co.ltd.),The Only Indonesian Railways Operator

The history of train in Indonesia began as the Governor General of East Indies, Mr L. A. J. Baron Sloet van de Beele led the inauguration ceremony in Kemijen Village on June 17, 1864. It was established by “Naamlooze Venootschap Nederlandsch Indishe Spoorweg Maatschappij” (NV. NISM). This private corporate built a train line that connected Kemijen – Tanggung and from February 10, 1870 Semarang – Surakarta (110 km). Railways were also built in South Sumatera (1914), West Sumatera (1891), North Sumatera (1886), Aceh (1874), and also on the island of Sulawesi in 1922 to connect Makasar – Takalar (47 km).

After Indonesia’s independence on August 17, 1945, the railways were taken over from the Japanese by railway staffs who united as “Angkatan Moeda Kereta Api” (AMKA). This happened in September 28, 1945 as Ismagil and several other AMKA members declared that the Indonesian railways belonged to the Indonesian. Later the date was set to be National Train Day. Five years later, based on the announcement made by the Minister of Transportation, Labour and Public Works No. 2 January 6, 1250, DKRI and “Staat-spoor Wegen en Verenigde Spoorweg Bedrijf (SS/VS) fused to “Djawatan Kereta Api” (DKA) starting from January 6, 1950.

In order to reorganize the corporate, the government issued Law No. 19/1960 which stated that the structure of the corporate was BUMN. Based on this law, the government later issued Government Regulation No. 22/1963 on May 25, 1963 and established “Perusahaan Kereta Api Negara” (PNKA) with Djawatan Kereta Api fused into it. On August 1, 1969, the government issued Law No.9/1969 and divided BUMN into three types; Limited Corporate, Public Corporate, and Bureau. Based on this law, according to Government Regulation No 61/1971, in September 15, 1971 PNKA was amended into “Perusahaan Jawatan Kereta Api” (PJKA).

According to Government Regulation No. 57/ 1990, on January 2, 1991, PJKA changed its status and became Perusahaan Umum Kereta Api or Perumka. This change of status has enhanced the workmanship in the corporate ever since.

Later, according to Loan Agreement No. 4 106-IND on 15 January 1997 about fund aid from the World Bank, which later known as “Proyek Efisiensi Kereta Api” or Railway Efficiency Project (REP), and Government Regulation No. 19/1998 which was issued on February 3, 1998, the government appointed Perusahaan Umum (PERUM) Kereta Api to change its form into Limited Corporate (Persero). The procession of this status amendment was done on June 1, 1999, when the Secretary of Transportation Giri S. Hardjono affirmed the direction of PT Kereta Api (Persero) (Indonesian Railways) in Bandung.


The Logo


This logo depicts the characteristic of lucidness, certainty, sharpness, horizontal also back and forth movement. Two straight lines with curved ends, coming from opposite direction, represent not only train movements, but also the service of giving and taking.

The design is well-defined, straight forward and sharp just as the technical staffs of the train. The sharp yet curved point resembles direction and speed from an aerodynamic movement. It is designed more curved and not too pointed to give a sense of safety, because sharp edged point usually makes people feel pain and aggressiveness, associated with blade or thorn.

The characteristic of the design is more lucid and objective because of its dominant geometric form and it has masculine characteristic. Its modern and technical quality can be seen easily on the design.

c. High Quality Economy Class

Such as KA Brantas connecting Tanah Abang - Kediri, Kaligung connecting Tegal - Semarang, and Logawa connecting Purwokerto - Surabaya.

d. Economy Class

A train for tourists operates, named Kereta Sultan, operates in Sumatera; while in West Sumatera operates a train service that travels to Anai Valley and Pariaman.

2. CARGO TRAIN

Train as cargo is not very popular in Java because train for passenger is more prior to cargo. Despite of that, recent development shows that by modernizing its cargo facility, it is now possible to provide cargo train with speed that is not much different to passenger train.

Cargo train Baja Satwa is targeted for cargo from Jakarta (Kampung Bandan) and Surabaya (Pasar Turi) returns. These cargo are containers, which load capacity is not limited to specified types.

b. Barang Cepat
This cargo train has the same area of service as KA Antaboga; Jakarta (Kampung Bandan) - Surabaya (Pasar Turi), but with closed cars. Commodity loaded is in variety with market availability.
