Running only when chartered, and trundling through the heart of the city, the Jaladara train offers a fun morning excursion. Built in Germany in 1896, the train sports carriages with vintage wooden fittings. The trip (with an English-speaking guide) starts at Purwosari train station, 3km west of the centre, and stops for a visit to a Kampung Batik Kauman batik workshop before terminating at Sangkrah train station.

A fun trip for tour groups, the train operates around 80 times per year.
