Treasuring North Sumatra Railway (KA Sumatra Utara Aceh : Divre 1) – B Kedai Durian Railway Station

Kedai Durian Station is one of former stasiun in the now-in-existence Medan – Deli Tua Railway track. This is the last station before the train reach final destination, Deli Tua Railway Station (although I heard that the extent of the railway is also reaching Sibiru-biru, still passengers train is only reaching Deli Tua)

This station is stationed just by the borderline of Medan city and Deli Serdang District (Deli Tua). If the plan is realized to re-activate this station, it will be very helpful as commuter station given the huge number of residents near Kedai Durian and Marindal.

Stasiun Kedai Durian merupakan salah satu stasiun di ex Jalur KA Medan – Deli Tua. Stasiun terakhir sebelum Stasiun tujuan Deli Tua (tp aq ingat ada juga jalur KA sampe Sibiru-biru, meski saat operasional KA Penumpang hanya sampe Deli Tua).

Stasiun ini terletak persis di sekitar garis perbatasan Kota Medan dan Kabupaten Deli Serdang. Akan sangat membantu kalo bisa jadi stasiun commuter lagi, penduduk di sekitar sini amat sangat padat baik sekitar Kedai Durian dan Marindal

This is the crossroad of Kedai Durian Railway Station, the former station premise is situated on the right side. The ascending mound is the point where railway cross section with the road. It is typical ‘physical appearances’ of all railway-streets crossing in Medan city with that ascending.

Inilah titik Stasiun Kedai Durian, stasiun posisi di sblh kanan..gundukan jalan itu adalah bekas rel KA (ciri khas rel Medan Deli Tua adalah semua rel perlintasan sebidang mulai dr Kota Medan sampe Deli Tua terletak sedikit di atas jalan raya sehingga seperti ‘polisi tidur’ (sehingga perpotonganny dengan jalan mudah sekali diidentifikasi)

There is official banner name which state that the land is under the ownership of PT. KAI (National Indonesian Railway Company), but don’t get it wrong, the permanent building behind is not courtesy of PT. KAI. Consequently these houses must be demolished if PT. KAI intends to reactivate the railway.

Plang tanah milik PT KAI.. eits itu bukan kantor stasiunny ya 😆 tapi bangunan permanen di atas jalur KA. Tentu saja kalau memang mau diaktifkan, bangunan2 ini harus digusur.

This is the railway view to Deli Tua (South of Medan). If I’m not mistaken, the station might be on the left side. While curious, I felt reluctant to check inside as there are many people over there, don’t wanna attract their attention.

Penampakan rel KA menghadap arah Deli Tua (Selatan). Stasiunny kalo ga salah dulunya di sisi kiri, aq agak segan ngecek ke dalam soalny lagi bnyk penduduk nongkrong di situ 😀

Penampakan rel KA menghadap arah Medan (Utara)
positifny di titik ini, jalur rel masih terlihat, sementara yg di Kota Medan ud nyaris full oleh bangunan permanen. Contoh di Ring Road, sudah ga ada lagi bekasny.

View of former railway to the North. What is great is that the railway track is still visible, unlike some in Medan where permanent buildings has occupied the track that no one is able to see the former track again.

This is the former access road to the station from the Medan – Deli Tua main road with 1,5 km of distance. Now the road is in very good condition, there are a lot of residents around.

Jalan yang dulunya merupakan jalan akses ke Stasiun Kedai Durian, berjarak sekitar 1,5 km dari simp Jl Brigjen Zein Hamid (Raya Medan – Deli Tua). Sekarang jadi jalan bagus beraspal terus arah Marindal, penduduk di sini lumayan padat
