Classic Train Mak Itam
May 2017 • Business
My actual business trip was back in 2012, stayed in a Dutch colonial house. Spacious and nice cold weather. Visited Mak Itam museum with some renovation, got a chance to see rework of the train and tour inside the train. The smell inside took us back immemorial. What a feeling. Good spot to visit.

Small but Interesting
Apr 2015 • Friends
We were in Sumatra to research a PoW railway & visited this small museum. It is small but has some interesting exhibits which all add to the rail history of this part of Sumatra. There was sufficient translation available for us to appreciate the old photographs & exhibits. We watched a short film which also filled in some gaps & had subtitles. The tourist railway doesn't run any more but there are old exhibits in the station yard. The staff were very pleasant & happy to help, giving us a few different brochures in English. There are some souvenirs for purchase. Definitely worth a look if you're interest in railway history.
