yogyakarta train station

Steam engine monument at the entrance of the Yogyakarta Train Station (Stasiun Ka Jogjakarta) in Indonesia.­

This is a Marshall single cylinder portable steam engine made in Gainsborough, England.­ Although it's termed a portable steam engine, it has no method of propelling itself so it would be pulled by a team of horses or oxen.­ They were used for running threshing machines, saw benches, mills & in the case of Asia were used within the sugar industry for running equipment (thanks for escortmad79 for this information).­

For more information about Marshall portable steam engines, read en.­wikipedia.­org/­wiki/­Portable_­engine and en.­wikipedia.­org/­wiki/­Marshall,_­Sons_­%26_­Co.

Jogja (Indonesia) 102 photos

Photos taken in Yogyakarta, commonly known as Jogja (Indonesia)

Most public transportation in the center of the city is done with cycle rickshaws and horse carriages.­ Locals seem to be very attached to those traditional (and environment friendly) modes of transportation.­

Private transportation is mostly by motorcycle, like in the rest of Indonesia.­ There is no legal limit to the number of passengers per motorbike, but you rarely see more than 5 people on a bike.­

Jogja was the starting point of my 2-month motorcycle trip around Indonesia (Java, Bali, Lombok, Sumbawa and Flores Islands).­ This is here that I rented a motorcycle (a Honda Supra 125cc semi-auto for $65 a month).­ But before hitting the road, I spent a week in Jogja, a lively city that has a very unique atmosphere and a lot of traditions.­
