Unique Indonesian Railway Museum Oct 10, 2005
The town Ambarawa was an important administrative centre for Central Java during the Dutch occupation. It was known as Willem 1 and had a large military camp of the KNIL (Royal Dutch East Indies Army). The camp was connected with Yogyakarta and Semarang through railway. There’s also a cog railway to supply the mountainous area around Ambarawa. Nowadays the railway is only in use for tourists, mainly local tourists.

The train station named Willem 1 is well preserved and functions as a railway museum. This is a must see museum for train lovers. The little steam train still runs for tourists. It’s a really nice ride through rice fields and rural area and doesn’t cost much.
