A SHORT BRIEF HISTORY OF RAILROAD IN INDONESIA
"SAMARANG" STATIONS, "AUGUST 10, 1867. ON THE MORNING SATURDAY THAT IS HISTORIC, IT SHOULD BE TRUSTED FOR EVERYONE. FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE RANGE OF OFFICIAL STEAM TRAINS LAUNCHED ON JAVA SOIL. BUT THE DIFFERENT VIEWS ARE CLEARLY LOOKED AT STATIONS BUILDING IN ITS COASTAL BEACH. DEVELOPMENT OF TRAIN RIGHT IN THE SEVEN SEVEN ON ONE HUNDRED FIVE YEARS A GO IS FAR AWAY FROM MERIAH ATMOSPHERE.

On June 17, 1864, the Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies Baron Sloet van de Beele (r. 1861-1866) arrived willingly to come from Batavia and took part in hoeing the land for the first time on the construction of the Semarang Kemijen railway line. Many people noted that day as the beginning of the history of trains in Indonesia, even though the train itself was not yet visible.
A more sensible ceremony was held at Solo Balapan Station in 1873. Nederlandsch Indische Spoorweg-Maatschappij as track and railroad owner managed to connect the railroad starting from Semarang port directly to Surakarta and Yogyakarta (Lempuyangan). The military may also be a little relieved because the Dutch army headquarters in Ambarawa also have access to the railway line. Thus, if there was an elite rebellion of the palace in the Sultanate of Yogyakarta, the Dutch East Indies Army could be mobilized more quickly by railroad. Since the existence of the train, military patrols to eradicate the remnants of Pangeran Diponegoro's supporters around Yogyakarta were also more often carried out until the last irregulars were captured in 1888.
