I'm reading conflicting reports on the safety of the train between Jakarta and Bogor. I can handle the situation of pick pockets and have no great concern there. However I'm wondering if it gets worse than that? I can handle it if such incidents are very rare but would obviously be more concerned if it wasn't that rare. I am a male and will be travelling with two other males all in our 40's. I ask because we would really rather have the train journey than hire a car and a driver. I love looking out of the windows of trains and watching life go by, but don't think it would be that nice if I'm too tense with concern for our safety and that of our belongings.
Any clarification on this would be most welcome. Thanks
