Padalarang Railway Station

This is Padalarang Railway Station viewed from a pedestrian crossing bridge on the west side of it.

Padalarang Station is the western most destination of Bandung's east - west (and currently the only) commuter train lines. It is located in the town of Padalarang at the elevation of more than 695 meters above the sea level and about 20 kilometers west of Bandung's city center. The station was built towards the end of the 19th century and has retained most of the original structure, including -- as you can see from here -- the wooden walls of the roof.

From this station westward, the railway tracks branch out to two different directions: northwest to Purwakarta and Jakarta and southwest to Cianjur and Sukabumi.

So old and still looking so nice, the station. I'm glad they let it remain.
