Apart from the steam train in Solo, there is one running from the Ambarawa railway museum 9 km uphill to Bedono v.v.:

This is the only operational steam loc in Asia using cogged wheel to negotiate steep incline. But it runs only when chartered, charter price Pr 7,500,000:

Ambaawa is a 1.5 hrs drive from Yogyakarta.
