Kaligung Train which is a medium-range commercial train has some interesting facts, along with its reviews: Starting operations in 1999, Kaligung Train initially used the KRD MCW fleet which provided business and economy class services. However, now the Kaligung Train uses the fourteenth train car bought directly by PT KAI. Generally, booking a public train ticket can be made on the D-90 trip. However, Kaligung Train passengers can only book on the D-30 trip. This fact also makes the Kaligung train unique and different from other train names.
