On 10 August 2017, it will be exactly 150 years since the first train took to the rails in Indonesia. Large sections of the Indonesian rail network were laid by the Dutch Railways. Between 1864 and 1942, when the country was still part of the overseas territories of the Netherlands, Dutch engineers and architects were closely involved in constructing the railway tracks and stations. The Railway Museum has a display of old posters, blueprints and photos, and several models of Indonesian train carriages.
